On own. From Portnellan following Walk Highlands route. A boggy ascent with low cloud above 700 metres and very strong winds making walking difficult. Legs screaming at me on a tough unrelenting ascent and wind ripped rucksack cover off and its probably blown to Aberdeen by now. No views at all. A couple of other walkers met at summit who were continuing to Stob Binnein but otherwise no one seen. Return same route. Tough!Beeliner05/09/2019

Drove up from Coventry to visit Britain's first geocache which is half way up Ben More. It semed silly not to climb all the way up having got that far. Came up from the road to the west.Father Ted21/06/2014

Misty, wet and windy.dromeas15/06/2013
Walked up from Inverlochlarig rather than the steeper, but shorter, route from Benmore Farm to the north. Took in Stob Bineinn on the way. 300m drop from there to the Bealach and 300m up to Ben Moore summit made it a bit of a slog in high winds rain/hail/sleet/snow falling and plently of snow on the upper slopes. Return was back down to the bealach and then off the hill into Inverlochlarig Glen for a boggy return to the car park for a 10.5 mile round trip. Wet feet were the order of the day, but overall a satisfying day on the hill.jonglew05/05/2013
A dangerous climb to summit,because of ice & snow.A nice trig point on the summit..stopped for lunch because we had clear views.Mc Tango09/04/2013
