Ben More is the highest point on the Isle of Mull, at 3169 ft above sea level. Anything above 3000 ft is called a Munro in Scotland. Starting from Loch Na Keal, we started the climb, with water and chocolate, and steadily made our way...More

Climbed Ben More via the tourist route from Dhseig. Nice enough views when dry but weather very changeable so went between soaked and suntan! Just going to see the waterfalls about half way up is worth it

I was extremely lucky with the weather and had a perfectly clear day to walk to the summit, the walk itself was moderate difficulty with a lack of a path on certain sections. If the weather was foggy then you would probably need to work...More

Great place to bag a munro! Stunning hike with beautiful clear water. We went up during the easter break and it was dry, clear and sunny. The bottom of the munro can be quite boggy. Once you reach the top the scenery and views are...More

Stunningly beautiful hike. We went in late October during the off-season. It was very wet and boggy for the first 2/3's so we had to earn our way up. It was pretty foggy up top so we didn't see as much as we could have...More

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!
