Ben Cruachan and Stob Daimh
Ben Cruachan is one of the finest Munros in the southern Highlands, its pointed peak towering above its rocky satellites giving great views. The ridge walk to Stob Daimh (misspelt Diamh on some OS maps) makes a great circuit around the Cruachan reservoir.
Steep and rocky paths with a small section of easy scrambling. The descent is a grassy slope which can be boggy in the final sections.
Train (Falls of Cruachan station summer only) and bus service to Ben Cruachan power station visitor centre.
Parking by the Falls of Cruachan railway station.
