Ben Hiant

The austere rugged profile of Ben Hiant (528m) dominates the eastern skyline of Kilchoan with its bare rock exposures and jutting outcrops. This is a lovely low level hill walk with stunning views on a fine day of the Small Isles, Mull and Skye, Loch Sunart and Loch Teacius, and the hills of Morvern. Good views are also afforded of Camus nan Geall and the deserted village of Bourblaige (a victim of the Highland Clearances in the 19th century) as well as Kilchoan’s Mingary Castle.

Directions: Park at the wide- splayed track just off the B8007. The start of the walk is immediately opposite the tarmac area on a small gravel track that veers right and heads uphill.
