Conival

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Conival is in view from Inchnadamph but is rather retiring compared to the lower peaks such as Quinag. Composed of Lewissian Gneiss - one of the oldest rocks on the planet - the mountain gives a steep ascent with tricky terrain. The view is of an otherworldly wilderness of lochs and moors, whilst a fine ridge connects with the neighbouring and higher Ben More Assynt.

Ben More Assynt and Conival from Inchnadamph

Other routes and challenges

An alternative route for the super fit would be a traverse of the ridge from Glas Bheinn in the north - over a great deal of rocky, rough ground, to reach Conival. A continuation to Breabag involves extremely steep and difficult ground to the bealach below Conival - perhaps better attempted in ascent.
