Am Bodach


Am Bodach is a mountain in the Highlands of Scotland. Situated in the Mamores Mountains, it lies 4 kilometres away from Kinlochleven and has an elevation of 1,032 metres.

Am Bodach is often climbed with three of its neighbouring Munros, An Gearanach, Stob Coire a' Chairn and Sgurr a'Mhaim, in a popular round known as "The Ring of Steall". Although there is a clear path for most of this route, it is still a very long and tiring day that covers 16 kilometres of rocky terrain and scrambling. Parking for the start of this walk is in a small area at the end of the road up Glen Nevis.

This is a fantastic round hike with great views over the surrounding Scottish landscape, best enjoyed on a clear day.

Before you go

  • This is a wild and remote place so make sure you are fully prepared for your visit.

    This means wearing the appropriate clothing and footwear for the the conditions, having a compass, map of the area and the knowledge to use these.

    You should also take some food, plenty of water, a first aid kit with an emergency whistle, a head torch and a mobile phone. You should also have spare warm and waterproof clothing with you and a survival bag should you need to await rescue for an emergency situation on the mountain.

    Always tell someone details of your route and give an indication of the time you should be expected back.
