This magnificent mountain ridgewalk takes in two Munros with truly outstanding views of mountain, sea and loch; a real Scottish classic. The ascent involves some easy scrambling up Schoolhouse Ridge, with an alternative suggested for those not wishing to put hand to rock.
Excellent walking on narrow grassy and rocky ridges higher up. Some scrambling on the ascent, and boggy going on the descent.
Ballachulish is served by both local and Citilink buses.
