Approaching this mountain on the A82, you might not think much of the vast grassy slopes. Indeed when seen form the Glen Lochay side it looks more classically inspiring.
However, most people do ascend after leaving a a layby on the main road near Kirkton Farm and following the famous West Highland Way for a short while, so it’s not until you are higher up the mountain that the vistas open up.
You will be treated to such gems as the distinctive peaks of Ben Lui, Ben More and Stob Binnein, as well as some fine views down to Strathfillan. At 1,025m it’s a lofty top and is reached along a short ridge that descends briefly before climbing to the main Munro top.
