Scattered throughout Scotland’s serene natural landscape, you will find a number of towering peaks, locally referred to as Munros, which have become an important part of the trekking and mountain climbing scene both in Scotland and around the world. Each year intrepid travellers book their hotel rooms in the wilderness of Scotland to summit a variety of these mountains, from Ben Nevis, the tallest peak in the United Kingdom, to Sgurr Dearg with its famous The Inaccessible Peak on the Isle of Skye.
Anyone wanting to summit multiple Munros will find this region a great base, as Fort William and Ben Nevis are just a short trip to the north. To reserve your place at a local hotel and plan your trip, start using the Expedia search tool now.
Explore Argyll and Bute
For those after something a mix of relaxation and outdoor fun on their Scottish adventure, a trip to the region of Argyll and Bute will not only give you a chance to scale mountains, but present you with the chance to relax in seaside towns like Oban, with its famous Oban Distillery, and on stretches of white sandy beach like those on the Isle of Tiree.
Summit the Great Ben Cruachan Munro
Just east of the coastal town of Oban visitors will find the 1126m tall Ben Cruachan, which is part of a horseshoe of mountains that help form a local hydro-electric power station, located inside a cavern in Ben Cruachan. 'Cruachan!' is in fact the battle cry two Highland Clans, the clans Campbell and MacIntyre, and anyone who manages to summit this peak will fancy letting out a wail of it in celebration.
