Ben More via A' Chioch and Beinn Fhada

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

The A' Chioch ridge provides the classic approach to Ben More for scramblers, revealing the finest features of the mountain. Adding Beinn Fhada as well makes for a full mountain day. The final slope up Ben More is unpleasantly loose and steep with tricky route finding.

Terrain

Boggy to start. Rocky mountain ridges with exposed easy scrambling. Great care required on final ascent up very steep slope with loose, broken rocks and tricky route finding.

Public Transport

None to start.

Start

Parking area on B8035 near Rubha na Moine. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
