The Isle of Mull guarded by its towering peak, Ben More, is my favourite place in the UK. An easy drive from the north of England or Edinburge/Glasgow via Inverary for a stop overnight and next day a short hour or so drive to Oban...More

Lovely mountain area with breathtaking scenery of the coast and the mountain pass. Lots of wildlife in the area as well as the local sheep and lambs.

Got lucky with the weather and climbed Ben More on a beautifully sunny and warm October day. Great views throughout the climb. Easy to follow track from parking (on the grass verge on the road) up to the summit. Really enjoyed climbing my first Munro!

Okay, rubbish weather, but good path. Do it with proper boots, as lots of variety of ground on the way. Very steep at the top, but overall a good clear path most of the way. Would be amazing with good weather

Very lucky that we visited Ben More last year (April 2015) with beautiful weather. Ben More sounds a bit scary for me as I'm a truly beginner for hills and mountains, but it definitely turned out to be easier than I thought. Except for the...More

Ben More now remains is the only Munro which must involve a ferry trip before it is climbed. You can still take the ferry to Skye but the bridge is now an option. Its isolated location affords unequalled views which extends as far as the...More

This is a fairly easy walk and quite pleasant. Turn off A848 just north of Salen, go past Forestry commission offices and stop at the car park with picnic bench in front. Walk down the track, where after a few hundred yards you will see...More
