This fabulous mountain ridgewalk takes in two Munros with outstanding views of mountain, sea and loch; a real Scottish classic. The route is somewhat marred by the ascent and descent from the ridge on pathless heather and eroded paths. During 2019 the descent path through the forest below the bealach as described here, on our map and our gps track is closed; alternatives are more difficult. Please see note in description text.

Terrain

Excellent walking on narrow grassy and rocky ridges higher up, but the ascent is up pathless, steep heather and the descent is on a poor, eroded and muddy path.

Public Transport

Ballachulish is served by both local and Citilink buses.

Start

Ballachulish village car park. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
