Schiehallion - DESCRIPTION

Schiehallion is the most famous peak in the area and attracts a huge number of walkers year round due to its accessibility. From a distance Schiehallion takes on a distinct conical appearance but it is in fact a long elongated hill with a long plateau running E-W with the true summit sitting near the western end of the ridge. The slopes to the north and south are sharp and elegant sweeping right down to the valley floor giving Schiehallion its infamous look. Most people start at Braes of Foes where there is a large car park available. The walk takes you up good paths all the way which were built by the John Muir Trust who own the land. There are other routes up that are a lot quieter.

An unusual story exists for Schiehallion in that it was donated to science research! In 1774 astronomer Neville Maskelyne used the apparently conical shape of Schiehallion to try an estimate the mass of the earth. We are not sure how successful he was!

Schiehallion is a great way to introduce you to walking the Munros as it is easily accessible and offers superb views in all directions.
