Ben Wyvis lies far out to the east well away from any Munros. Ben Wyvis is well seen form all surrounding areas. The Munro is quite complex but the main summit is the meeting point of 3 ridges running SW, E and NE. The eastern ridge terminates at subsidiary top An t-Socach before dropping sharply to the floor of Coire Mor, a deep corrie which the summit overlooks. The NE ridge runs up the rim of Coire Mor to another subsidiary peak Tom a Choinnich. The entire eastern face of the ridge overlooking the corrie is crag ridden and care should be taken. The SW ridge runs round the head of another corrie named coire na Feola. The ridge then continues to An Cabar before dropping down to the Alt a Bhealaich Mhoir, this is a common route of ascent. The eastern corries are by far the Munros best features.

Most people access Ben Wyvis from the west on the A835 road just south of Garbat. Stalkers paths lead up the Allt a' Bhealaich Mhoir to attain the southern summit ridge as mentioned above. There are other longer routes in from the north.
