Lochaber has many Munros, including some of the most popular ones in the country. This is one of the less frequented, no doubt due to the relatively long approach from the main roads. However, the approach and the views from the walk, particularly looking down Loch Hourn from the summit, make it a particularly worthwhile day. Also, as ascents of Munros go, it is a fairly short walk and has no technical difficulties. The ascent route described is the most straightforward way up, following a good stalker's path.

Although returning by the same route may be quickest, the route described here follows another ridge, giving different views on the descent and also taking you through an area which contains a variety of wildflowers during the summer.

I did this walk about 3 years ago, it was 17 miles along the single track road until the start of the walk, which is why I guess people are put off; however, a very worthwhile walk with great views and the long approach road has some fine scenery too.

Done this walk on 5th June 2015 the views were absolutely stunning, one of the best for scenery we have ever done. Cheers Colin
