“Where is Ben Stack?”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2014

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”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2013

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).

“Spectacular views and sense of the wild”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2012

It's the highest mountain nearby, trails are great even for a moderately fit family.
