Ben More (1,174m)

There are two Munros in Scotland with the name More (meaning ‘big’ in Gaelic) , the other being Ben More on the Island of Mull. Inside the National Park, Ben More and its close neighbour Stob Binnein are located close to Crianlarich and relatively easy to reach from there by public transport.

At 1,174m and with an elevation of 986m, this Munro is a challenging climb and the pyramid shape of the mountain makes it steep. Most people start from Ben More Farm on the A85, walking south-east to Ben More and then on to Stob Binnein.

The summit of Ben More has a large cairn and thanks to its loftiness the views from here are usually superb. You can see a many mountains of the southern Highlands over to Ben Lawers above Loch Tay and also Ben Lui in the west.

You can find information about the trail up Ben More here.
