Scottish Fire and Rescue have issued a fire risk warning from 17-20 April. We strongly advise against having fires or barbecues when out in the National Park during this period.Close alert
With 21 Munros (mountains above 3,000ft) in the Park, the highest being Ben More at 1,174m, and 19 Corbetts (mountains between 2,500ft and 3,000ft), Park visitors in search of a proper hike will have no trouble sating their appetite. Ben Venue is a favourite, a manageable but pleasingly tiring Corbett that’s between 4 and 5 hours up and down with a clear path, accessible off the A821.
Depending on the Ben you choose, there are options in all the Park’s large villages to pick up a picnic. Word of advice, start the day with a hearty bowl of porridge or perhaps a brilliant Eggs Benedict from Mhor 84, and do pack a flask of tea or soup in your backpack. It gets cold on the peaks even in summer!
