Stob an Aonaich Mhoir, from Loch Rannoch

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

This remote hill enjoys a superb position above Loch Ericht, making it a wonderful viewpoint, revealed only at the last moment to most walkers. The usual approach involves many kilometres along a private tarmac road - if you only use a bicycle to help reach one hill, it should probably be this one.

Terrain

Private tarmac road for most of the walk, final kilometre to and from the summit across pathless, boggy moorland. The road is a little potholed in the initial stages before improving, but is suitable for road bikes with sufficient gears for the long, steady climbs.

Public Transport

None to start.
