The Ring of Steall is probably the most classic mountain route in Scotland!

You’ll need a good level of fitness, a head for heights and mental toughness for what is a long, tough but equally very rewarding day, taking in four munro and a massive 1676m of climbing!

On a clear day, the panoramic view from this classic ridge walk is possibly unrivalled in the UK.

The Ring of Steall starts from Glen Nevis, in Fort William (the starting point of an ascent of Ben Nevis) taking in the magnificent Steall Falls, made famous in the Harry Potter films and  soon crossing the infamous wire bridge before making our way up to An Gearanach (982m).  It’s a long way up, but at least most of the day’s climbing has been ticked off.

We then continue undulating along the ridge, scrambling in parts until we reach Stop Coire a’Chairn, where we take in views of the Grey Corries and the eastern Mamores.

After dropping down we climb up again to Am Bodach (The Old Man, 1032m).

Finally, we traverse ‘The Devil’s Ridge’ and the ascent up to Stop Coire a’Mhail, before descending the trickier section of ridge, after which we continue to our final munro, Sgorr a’Mhaim.

After taking in the incredible views of Devil’s Ridge and the whole Ring of Steall, we make our way back after an incredible, never to be forgotten mountain day!
