Come across the sea to Mull, for the only Munro that requires a ferry to reach it.

We will be doing a circular route that takes in some ridges and has a small scramble to reach the summit of the mountain. Our route starts by walking a couple of km back along the road before heading inland and making for Beinn Fhada, a wide ridge that heads SE. At the far end of this we head SW and go over A' Choich which is a small challenge for those who want to scramble. You can bypass this top before we drop slightly to a bealach and the final narrow ridge to Ben More reveals itself, the final ascent to Ben More is steep and the rock is very loose. After admiring the views we take the popular path back down to where we started in the morning.

This event is one that is celebrating the broadcast 30 years ago of 'The Munro Show'.  This STV programme was broadcast in 1991/92 with Muriel Gray at its helm, which was a series that was involved in bringing mountaineering and munro bagging into the modern mainstream. This is one of a handful of the 22 mountains covered that can be found on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aLmlzpqTxaU
