Slioch or ‘the Spear’ rises dramatically above Loch Maree and is great for hikers who love a challenging munro
We love this hill and even suggested it as the Best Munro for Wanderlust’s 20 best hikes in Scotland list. Why you ask? For starters Slioch has a picture-postcard aesthetic rising up against the beautiful Loch Maree, but it’s the adrenalin of the challenge that really gets us going. Ascending the looming mountain is a long but rewarding day on the hill. It’s a highlight of our High Points of Wester Ross & Torridon walking trip and we include it whenever our fickle Scottish weather allows. It’s our most challenging scheduled walking trip and each day we aim to climb a new peak!
