Ben Hiant

  • ben Hiant

At 528m Ben Hiant is the largest hill on The Ardnamurchan Peninsula and the views from the summit over Loch Sunart and out toThe Small Isles are breathtaking.  Most of the gentle ascent is on a fairly distinctive path though there are a couple of steeper and slightly vertiginous sections near the summit.  A wonderful short hill walk and one with considerable botanical and geological interest.  Look out for golden and white-tailed eagles; listen out for the roars of red deer during the Autumn rut.  A lovely hill walk.
