WALK SUMMARY

This superb 846m peak is said to be the westernmost major summit in the highlands, although various peaks on Skye (just to name one area) would disagree. 

Ben Resipol sits between slender Loch Shiel and the long sea-loch Loch Sunart, so has huge and beautiful views which extend to the island-speckled sea.

It can be approached from various directions, including a rough and boggy path from Resipol on Loch Sunart (11.5km return) and the boggy track and trackless moorland from Ariundle to the east (15+ km).

See the excellent https://www.walkhighlands.co.uk/fortwilliam/ardnamurchan.shtml  for lots of ideas.
