Schiehallion

Distance: 1 Hour

Back to activities

One of Scotland’s best known hills, Schiehallion is one of the easiest Munros to climb on a fine summers day. It takes the form of a broad ridge, with the famous conical appearance only apparent from across Loch Rannoch.

Schiehallion has a rich botanical life, interesting archaeology, and a unique place in scientific history for an 18th-century experiment in “weighing the world”. The mountain’s popularity amongst walkers led to erosion on its footpath and extensive repairs were undertaken in 2001.
