Ben Cruachan and Stob Daimh

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

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 Dàimh (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.

Public Transport

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. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
