Details for Ben More (Isle of Mull)

Ben More is the highest peak on the Isle of Mull and is situated on the west side of the Island and dominates most viewpoints. The western range is viewed well from where the B8035 road reaches Loch na Keal NM539389 . From an areal views the great massive appears as numerous twisting ridges around a large central summit point at 966m. The majority of the upper slopes is littered with metalised scree which also can effect compass readings.

The summit point is an isolated peak and the meeting of 3 ridges with the north eastern one which links to the satellite peak A' Choiche giving best access to the munro.

Usual access to climb Ben More is from the lonely southern banks of Loch na Keal on a well defined path which follows the north west ridge onto the summit from Dhiseig. Perhaps a better approch is from the bridge at the outlet of Abhainn and doing a full travers taking in the north eastern ridge which has often misleadingly compared to Aonach Eagach and Laithach.

On a good clear day which is highly recommended expect views over Loch na Keal and Ulva to the Treshnish Isles. To the north are the peaks of Rhum and Skye, and on the south the Paps of Jura
