Ben Hee

Ben Hee is a big mass of a Corbett with several ridges and corries radiating from its central 873 metre highest peak. It lies at the southern end of the Reay Forest group of hills in Northern Sutherland and is most easily accessed from the track between West Merkland (on the A838 north of Lairg and Loch Shin) and Allnabad on the Hope to Altnaharra road. The mountain occupies a grand position at the south end of Strath More when viewed from Ben Hope to the north.

Accommodation can be booked in the Durness, Tongue or Lairg areas, any of which are ideal locations for exploring the area.

Ben Hope Summit Camp
Back in July I had a free weekend that coincided with good weather in the north west. This generally seems to be a rare occurrence with good weather appearing to only happen during the working week. Whilst having climbed Ben Hope many times I had never spent a night high ...
