Ben Hope is the northernmost Munro. It is a very remote mountain with excellent views. The path up the hill starts on the minor road between Hope and Altnaharra near the place called Muiseal. There is a sign pointing you the right way, but you have to stick to the path. It is not hard since the path is good. You can reach the top in two and a half hour, but it depends on how you are fit. From the top, Ben Loyal to the east, Ben Klibreck to the south and Foinaven to the west. Ben Hope is 927 meters high and is one of the Munros.
