Ben More (Mull) by public transport

Munros: Ben More (Mull)

Date walked: 26/04/2022

Time taken: 5 hours

Ascent: 1100m

Hard to find a description of ways to climb Ben More by public transport, so here is one. I took the 09:20 bus from Fionnphort to a passing place below Torr na h-Uamha. There is a wee bridge and a good path led me to the col. Reaching A'Chioch there are some steep scree fields to negotiate. Make sure nobody is above or below you. The ridge leading to Ben More is a wee scramble, but nothing exposed. I descended via the south top and followed a scree slope westwards. After it is easy to find a way down towards the Ardvergnish farm. Depending on the season there are sheep pens to be avoided. Walk back to the main road where there is even a bus shelter.

Hitching back to Fionnphort was harder than expected and I had to walk a fair deal on tarmac. Coming from Fionnphort, the bus time table allows for 7 hours which is more than plenty. It's also more than plenty if you come from the direction of Craignure.

Thanks to the Swiss couple to gave me ride!
