I like climbing mountains on islands. In Scotland they are for the most part not as high as their mainland counterparts but they make up for this with a close proximity to the sea and the quality of light this brings. Ben More is no...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!

We were staying on the island for a few days so thought it would be rude not to climb the Ben. Unfortunately we picked the worst day of the week weather wise but that can't be helped. We had climbed Ben Nevis a few days...More
