The Mamore Mountains

Located between Loch Leven and Glen Nevis, this long ridge stretches about 12½ miles east to west with steep sharp spurs branching off to the north and south. The range contains five munros and a further six tops above the 3000ft. mark all offering excellent ridge walking with easy access from either Kinlochleven or Glen Nevis. A network of stalkers' paths penetrates most of the corries and reach the main ridge.
