Ben Hope

Ben Hope’s noble title as Britain’s most northerly Munro suits its physicality perfectly: sharp, but not scary; impressive without being intimidating; dramatic yet achievable. With sub-arctic tundra stretching east, and Cape Wrath and the end of Britain to the north, summiting Ben Hope is a singular experience: it rises disproportionately to its surroundings, vastly higher than anything nearby. Conversely to Ben Lomond – as the most southerly Munro, a fitting bookend – your experience of Ben Hope is enhanced by the knowledge that almost every other mountain in Britain lies south. 

Best route: via the south ridge from Alltnacaillich.
