A Grand Feature
Oct 2019
This feature stands out from miles away when driving in this scenic, barren area. A splendid sight. The approach up the feature heading towards the northwest is the more gentle angle. There are parking areas near the feature (to the east of the A838).

easy climb of a top peak in the far north west

Climbed Ben Stack years ago...it was covered in snow and ice! But it was not an especially difficult climb, and the views were amazing!

What a view!
May 2018 • Solo
Not the highest mountain in these parts but an excellent short climb to a cracking viewpoint - looking across Loch Stack to Arkle and Foinaven, or out towards the coast. Thoroughly recommended.

Serious Professional climbers only...

Stunning views all around...but for hikes, this is serious business and could be very dangerous. We drove by and got out for photos. Again, stunning.

Amazing views
Sep 2017 • Solo
Even though Ben Stack is not a munro the climb is quite demanding. Most of the climb is through boggy ground so make sure you wear fitting boots. The start of the track was a bit hard to find, as it is not signposted. It is on the left hand side of the road heading north from Achfary, parking is possible about 100 m firther north on the right hand side of A838.
The climb is well worth the effort, views over the northwestern coastline and the surrounding lochs are breathtaking. Going down is a slippery affair and I got "lost" quite often, meaning I strayed from the path because it was not clearly visible all of the time. But you actually can't really get lost in good weather because you just head staight down towards the road and you will end up back down one way or the other.

A must take in Ben Stack, Ben Loyal and the majestic Arkle
Jun 2016 • Friends
On our tour of North Coast 500 we took a number of minor detours to take in the Munro s and corbetts. Not time to climb but to look at and wonder.

These three destinations say it all about this lovely part of Scotland

Made the summit on our third attempt
May 2015 • Couples
It took three attempts to get to the summit due to bad weather, but it was well worth our efforts as the views all around are magnificent.

A thousand Lochans View
Jul 2015 • Couples
Took us a few hours to ascend as it was quite steep and I had to keep stopping to catch my breath. Probably have been easier if we hadn't gone 'off piste' to take a short cut. However there were fantastic views, described in our guide book as Ben Stack and the Thousand Lochans.

Where is Ben Stack?
Apr 2014 • Couples
The map associated with TripAdvisor's entry for Ben Stack places the mountain in the village of Durness. It isn't. It is actually on the south shore of Loch Stack, about 24 miles south of Durness. Not a problem if you have a car, but a serious one of you don't!

Pity about the weather
May 2013 • Couples
A very convenient climb right by the side of the road. Not too taxing and in good weather would give good views! Eagles in the area too (and some low flying aircraft occasionally).
