Ben Stack, Durness

4.5
#8 of 9 in Parks in Durness
Ben Stack is a mountain in Sutherland, in the northwest of Scotland. It is 721m high. It lies southeast of Laxford Bridge and northwest of Loch More along the A838 road, and just west of Loch Stack.
It is regarded as a moderately easy walk for walkers and hikers due to its overall height and its accessibility from the A838 road. It is most commonly climbed from the southeast, following the long eastern ridge of Leathad na Stioma. A slightly steeper alternative comes from the northwestern side, starting from near Lochstack Lodge. These starting points are both located on the A838 road, thus a traverse is possible.
On 6 August 2005 former U.K. Foreign Secretary Robin Cook died after collapsing with a heart attack whilst walking down from the summit.

  • 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!  more »
  • 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.  more »
