Ben Wyvis, near Garve

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Ben Wyvis is a vast and sprawling mountain whose isolated position makes it the dominating feature of a wide area of the Highlands. The ascent to its spacious plateau is a reasonably straightforward ascent in good summer conditions by Munro standards and there are very extensive views from the summit.


Easy ascent on paths through the forest initially, followed by much steeper ground on the path ascending to An Cabar.

Public Transport

None to start.


Ben Wyvis car park, south of Garbat. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
