The Ring of Steall is a superb day in the mountains, four Munros are linked by glacier sculpted high ground- including many fine, sharp ridges and some easy scrambling. A wire bridge, a river crossing and a dramatic waterfall add to the experience.

Is it for me?
The Ring Of Steall is one of the finest low grade mountaineering days in the country, with an tranquil approach alongside a river, a wire bridge crossing, graceful ridges throughout its length and given the conditions, panoramic views of the Glen Coe mountains, the Mamores and the Ben Nevis Massif.
It's a classic mountain route and combines the traverse of four Munros with scrambling along narrow, rocky aretes. The route takes in An Gearanach, Stob Choire a Chairn, Am Bodach and then follows the Devils Ridge to Sgurr a'Mhaim.
With a qualified and experienced instructor guiding you, you will have the opportunity to attack the finest and most exposed sections of the ridge head on, making easy climbing moves in complete security. The scrambling is never difficult and rarely exposed, making this an ideal day for those with little experience. The entire circuit is a long and exhausting day, however there are options to shorten it if required.
