Ben Cruachan - DESCRIPTION

Ben Cruachan is one of the more well know of the Munros in the Southern Highlands and for very good reason…the mountain is nothing short of spectacular. Its summit is made up of a series of complex ridges which are best appreciated from its nearest neighbours to the north east. This hill constantly looks down over Coire Cruachan with its very impressive hydroelectric dam. Ben Cruachan is normally climbed in a horseshoe loop with its neighbouring Munro Stob Diamh which is a long but extremely rewarding day on the hills. Stob Diamh is connected to Ben Cruachan’s long eastern ridge which rarely drops below 900m giving you superb views north and south the entire time.

Ben Cruachan sits at 1126m making it a fine vantage point to view all other hills in the area right up to Glencoe and Lochaber. There is a subsidiary top Stob Dearg to the north west of the summit which if you have energy left is well worth a visit to get fantastic views down Loch Etive one of Scotland’s most beautiful lochs.

Ben Cruachan quite uniquely is the only Munro to a power station hollowed into in its lower reaches to process power from the Cruachan hydro electric dam. There is a visitor centre which is well worth a visit.

Parking is sparse and in demand but there are several spots at the start of the access road to the Cruachan Dam
