Ben Hiant, Ardnamurchan

Ben Hiant may be only 528m high, but its position as the highest point out on the Ardnamurchan peninsula makes it a superlative viewpoint, taking in miles of coastline and countless islands. It's also a shapely little peak in its own right - a perfect short hillwalk.


Hill path throughout; some steeper ground and boggy sections.

Public Transport

None to start.


Parking at NM551641 near its highest point. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
