Ben Cruachan

Sentinel of the southern Highlands, such is the mighty presence of Ben Cruachan, this mountain was once thought to be Britain’s highest peak. Step onto its narrow, crotchety summit ridge punctuated with seven tops and towering over the appropriately named Loch Awe, and you can understand why our forebears were so impressed.

Best route there are several approaches, but the classic horseshoe begins at the power station: NN077268.
