Though much lesser known than the neighbouring, celebrated peak of Foinaven, Arkle has a fine, curving ridge of shattered quartzite and is a very worthy mountain in its own right.
Altitude: 787 metres
Detailed route description and map
Other routes and challenges
The route along the ridge from the SE is the only one avoiding the fearsome scree slopes on the flanks of the mountain. It could be climbed as a detour on an epic through walk including a traverse of Foinaven.
