Overscaig House Hotel Overscaig House Hotel, North Highlands, Scotland

Walking - Local Munros, Corbetts, etc.

As Cameron McNeish says in The Munros, "I remember ….. on the return drive just wishing I could stay in this incredible area for a bit longer"!

Within a few miles of the Overscaig are the four most northerly Munros:

Munro No. Name Height
141 Ben More Assynt 998m/3274ft
158 Conival 987m/3238ft
194 Ben Klibreck 962m/3156ft
256 Ben Hope 927m/3041ft

In addition, this area has numerous smaller hills which are said to be "the finest in the country" and in many ways superior to the glamorous Munros that look down upon them. Hills like Foinaven, Arkle, Ben Stack and Ben Hee are close to the hotel with others like Suilven, and Quineag and Ben Loyal just a short drive away.

Ben Leoid (792m) sits just at the head of Loch Shin and offers a spectacular panorama of the surrounding country.

For an excellent list (with details) of walks in this area try the Walk Highlands website.
