This is the most straightforward route up and down Ben More, Mull's only Munro, and makes for a great hillwalk avoiding the need for any scrambling. Phone the Benmore Estate (01680 300229) Aug - 20 Oct for dates of deer stalking - no stalking on Sundays.
Not a lot here. I suppose you could walk up the track to the top of Ben More - 966m or 3169 ft, so a Munro - but it would take you most of the day and it is a bit of a slog up this side of the mountain. The beach is stony, there are a couple of burns bubbling their way under stone bridges, but that is about it. However, the views from the anchorage are spectacular, so probably best as a lunch stop on a nice day. The small road along the coast does not intrude too much, although I suppose it might at the height of the tourist season.
HILLWALKING IN WINTER

All route descriptions and difficulties given here are for summer conditions.
