Ben Stack is a mountain located in northern Scotland, in the county of Sutherland. It is 721 metres (2365 feet) high. It is located southeast of Laxford Bridge and northwest of Loch More and the town of Lairg, along the A838 road, and just west of Loch Stack across the A838.
It is regarded as a moderately easy walk for walkers and hikers, both due to its overall height and its accessibility, near the A838 road.
Ben Stack 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. The starting points are both located on the A838, thus a traverse is possible.
