A unique photographic inspiration, guide and resource for the wonderful landscapes, mountains and sights of Scotland – featuring the photography of Jason Bonniface.
Ben Hope is the most northerly Munro and is an iconic mountain of Sutherland and the far north. It is a superb hill but all too often visited briefly and climbed by its broad southern flank where a popular path gives boggy and eroded access to the upper hill and summit. If you can, take the time to explore and enjoy this fine hill in its unique position on Scotland’s north coast with views extending from the Butt of Lewis to Orkney and Quinag to the hills of Easter Ross on a fine day.
Please note: This page is in development but in the meantime I hope you enjoy the small selection of photos. Please check back for more photos, route information & an interactive map – coming soon.
