Ben Klibreck is a huge, isolated massif rising high above the vast, empty moorlands that comprise the central part of Sutherland. The usual ascent route is rough, boggy and steep but this route makes a longer but more enjoyable approach along the ridge. The fabulous summit views are of a remarkably empty land.
Track and moorland ridges, boggy in places, with a steeper final ascent.
