    Ben Cruachan Information

    Ben Cruachan is 1126m high mountain and the highest point in Argyll and Bute and the nearby hydroelectric power dam is named after it. It is the high point of a circle of mountains called the Cruachan Horseshoe and is popular among hikers and climbers as the views are stunning!

    Here, the slopes are steep but easy to climb and there are a variety of other routes to tackle like Meall Duanail. The ridge walk o Stob Daimh takes you around the reservoir on rocky paths but with a grassy descent.
