The Gaelic “Ben” meaning “mountain”, and the Norse “Hop” for “bay”, make Ben Hope the Mountain of the Bay. At 3040ft (927m), it is our most northerly Munro, as all Scottish peaks over 3000ft are known. The mountain towers over Castle Varrich on its cliff-girt peninsula overlooking the Kyle of Tongue, and can be climbed by a long, adventurous and pathless tramp from the head of the Kyle. However, most folk make the ascent from the Strathmore road to the west of the mountain, climbing up a stairlike path alongside a series of waterfalls. Another alternative is a longer but less strenuous route beginning near Dun Dornaigil Broch, a little further south. Both of these western routes meet at the base of the final stony dome of the hill, up which a rough path zig-zags seemingly endlessly with ever widening views as compensation. The top is like a perch in the sky, the exhilarating vista only spoiled by the thought of getting all the way down again!
