Ben Wyvis and Little WyvisBen Wyvis is the long and large 'whale-backed' mountain dominating the landscape north of the Black Isle and Inverness. Ben Wyvis has several peaks on its massif plateau, including a Munro summit - Glas Leathad Mor. Little Wyvis lies just to the south separated from Ben Wyvis by the Bealach Mor.
Main route summary
But don't be led into a false sense of security by the obviousness of the path - the featureless whale-back summit plateau of Ben Wyvis can catch out even the most experienced hillwalker when their guard and the mist are down.
Due to this mountain's isolation the views are wonderful, but venture north from the summit and explore the minor tops where you'll find even more interest with more summits, hidden lochans and crags.
