Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

With a high-level start point, a direct path and fine views, Ben Donich makes an excellent objective for a shorter hillwalk. There is a little rocky ground with a slight scramble down before the summit to add a little character.


There is a fairly good path for most of the ascent, though it is not continuous on the summit plateau. There is some rocky ground with a short easy scramble at one point. Deep cleft-like cavities beside the path could become a trap when covered in snow.

Public Transport

None to start.
