    Situated in the vast expanse of northern Sutherland, with panoramic views of the Scottish North coast and the Flow Country, Ben Hope is the most northerly Munro in Scotland. At 927m/3041ft and standing in isolation, Ben Hope is truly a beautiful mountain, visible for miles all across the region. Originally known as Beinn Hòb, or 'Bay Mountain', its name derives from a mix of Gaelic and Norse, and was likely given to the mountain due to its proximity to a several sheltered sea lochs where safe berth could be found for ships. Ben Hope is also part of the Moine Thrust, a large geological fault system running right across the North West Highlands of Scotland; this is what gives the western flank of the mountain its distinct craggy appearance.
