    fact There are in fact 9 Munros mountains over 3000ft within a 20 mile radius of Oban including Ben More on Mull Glencoe is only a hours drive north and that opens up a huge amount of extra walking most of it in the more strenuous category and Ben Nevis Scotland and the UK s highest mountain is a few miles further on As well as the more serious mountains there is also a lot of easy walks available some around island such as Kerrara or Iona some on forestry trails and some on smaller hills So overall Argyll has a lot to offer the walker whatever their level Our aim in these pages is to offer a taster of the range of walking the area has to offer by doing guides of some of the more popular walks those that visitors to the shop most often ask about We therefore will be doing route guides including photos and a map for the following hills Ben More Mull Ben Crauchan Ben Lora Benderloch This listing is a for starters only As time allows we will be adding to the routes available We keep in stock a good selection of walking

    cold beer once we got on the ferry was a experience I could do without repeating The easiest option is of course to take a car over on the ferry and spend a couple of days exploring Mull a very worthwhile exercise The foot of the climb is on the shores of Loch Na Keal at the foot of the burn Abhainn na h Uamha there is space just over the bridge to park your car on the grass The path sets off alongside the burn on the east side and is a steady tramp up which doesn t really start to get steep until past the waterfalls There are a couple of tributaries to be crossed and the path here becomes a little indistinct but continue heading for the col directly ahead The col is a broad saddle and a good place for a rest before the ascent starts in ernest The satellite peak of A Chioch the breast rears up in front of you a requires a steep pull up including some sections where the hands are definitely required From the top of A Chioch you can now see the bulk of Ben More in front and after a short descent the final climb awaits It starts off steady at first but soon gets narrower and steeper and the final 100m of the climb is a good scramble requiring a good head for heights as the best place to be is right on the ridge as the ground is looser and less secure round to the right On the summit there is a round sheep fank which offers some protection from the wind whilst a welcome drink is taken On a clear day you get fantastic views north towards the small isles of Rhum and Canna with the
