Ben Resipol is the westernmost of the big Highland peaks; it's position between Loch Shiel and Loch Sunart, looking out over Ardnamurchan and a wide sweep of sea and islands, makes it a classic viewpoint.


The path is indistinct in places and towards the summit fades completely. Most of the route is very boggy and rough; rocky near the top.

Public Transport

Very infrequent bus service.


Parking at Resipole campsite. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
