Walking & Running - Beinn Mhor

For more experienced hill walkers and fell runners the third walk features the highest hill in the area, Beinn Mhor. After the first section on a small road from Benmore Gardens to Stoneyfield in Glen Massan, passing the famous Golden Gates, this is a straightforward out-and-back route, although navigation skills are required for the final climb.

With 23.4km and 710m of climbing this is a tough route, but the effort is well rewarded with extensive views. The route is a great adventure for fell runners too. West Coast Motors operates a regular bus service to from Dunoon, and on Sunday a shuttle service runs between Dunoon and Benmore Botanic Garden (from March to October).
