The guide describes 34 mountain walks in Scotland's far-west peninsula – including Morvern, Ardnamurchan and Ardgour – and on the island of Mull.

Mull, Scotland's third largest isle, and for bard Dugold MacPhail 'Of Isles the Fairest', has something for everyone. Those with interests in archaeology, geology and history will be captivated; naturalists will be fascinated by its flora and fauna; but its universal magic is tranquillity, while affording you all the joys of walking in the great outdoors.

Across the narrow Sound of Mull, lies Morvern with Ardgour and Ardnamurchan. Here the enchantment continues to develop. At its farthest reaches, approached by a narrow road meandering through the finest scenery, is the most westerly part of the British mainland, Ardnamurchan Point.

The allure of Mull, Morvern, Ardnamurchan and Ardgour is outstanding, and once you have seen them, you will want to visit Scotland's far west time after time.

  • Seasons
    Year round but arguably at its best in Spring and Autumn.
  • Centres
    Access through Oban or Fort William. Bases include Tobermory, Craignure and Bunessan on Mull; Strontian in Ardgour; Salen and Lochaline.
  • Difficulty
    Varied. Lengths from half to full days, with coastal and hill walks to the summits. It is remote so the ground can be fairly rough.
  • Must See
    Iona, trips to the islands off Mull (Staffa and Fingal's Cave). Ardnamurchan Point is the farthest point west in mainland Britain.


September 2012

Walk 12, Beinn Resipole from Resipole. 

The route notes read... "A - Some 150m E of the campsite on the A861, a gate gives access to the hills. Pass through the gate and follow the well-defined path/track."
It appears the camp site has now been extended and the gate is now the main entrance to the camp site.  Just inside and to the right of the gate there is a brand new reception building. Turn right immediately past this building - the new path is ahead, obvious and signposted.
