About the event

The four Eastern Mammores are a less popular than their neighbours. This is purely because the name “Ring of Steall” sounds more dramatic and is nothing to do with the quality or challenge of the day. These four Munros offer a testing but rewarding day out in their own right.

We’ll start in Kinlochleven and ascend steadily, to Coire an Lochain. There are excellent views across Loch Eilde Mor and back towards Loch Leven but the best view is of Sgurr Eilde Mor across the Lochain. From here, it’s a short (but steep) haul up tour first summit of the day - Sgurr Eilde Mor. We return via the same route to the lochain before crossing Coire a’Bhinnein to reach the foot of Binnein Beag. Binnein Beag reminds me of Stob Ban next to the Grey Corries. It looks tiny compared to it’s giant neighbours and it's hard to believe it's a Munro but its shape and situation provide an excellent vantage point. From here Binnein Mor looks absolutely huge! We’ll descend to the low point between the two before traversing over to the dramatic northern ridge which leads to the summit of Binnein Mor. Binnein Mor is a fantastic summit and my favourite in the Mammores. Beyond the summit, the ridge widens and the walk continues over a minor peak to reach Na Gruagaichean, our final summit of the day. The descent from Na Gruagaichean is rough and pathless which makes for a tough end to the day but once again the views to Loch Leven open up making it an enjoyable one.

We've graded this adventure as red due to its length, large ascent and challenging terrain. If you have any questions or want a chat ahead of booking then please get in touch.
