Mountains

There are far to many mountains in Scotland to cover them all here.

General definitions: Munroe - mountain above 3000 feet. Corbett - mountains between 2500 and 3000 feet.

Some popular mountains by group

Far north
  • Ben Hope
  • Ben Loyal
  • Foinaven
  • Ben Stack - neither particularly high nor well known but a little gem.
northern Torridonian mountains - i.e. Mountains of Torridonian sandstone north of Ullapool.
  • Quinag - An easy Corbett for beginners as it's possible to start well up from the main road south from Kylescu.
  • Suilven - easier than it looks but its distance from roads makes it a challenge.
  • Cul Mor
  • Cul Beag
  • Stac Pollaidh - Less than a Corbett but with an outstanding shape and rock ridge - unfotunately much eroded because of its proximity to the road.
Beinn Aligin

Torridonian Munroes

  • An Teallach - a fairly hard ridge walk above Little Loch Broom.
  • Slioch - on the 'non-road' side of Loch Maree.
  • Bein Eigh - above the Loch Maree road and much of the road from Kinlochewe to Torridon.
  • Liathach - above the village of Torridon.
  • Beinn Aligin - above the minor road from Torridon to the Aligins and Lower Diabaig.
  • Bein Bhann - otherwise known as the Applecross mountains.
