Black Mount (also Blackmount) is a mountain range located in Argyll and Bute, Scotland. It is situated between Glen Orchy and Glen Coe. Its four Munros include Stob Ghabhar, Stob a' Choire Odhair, Creise and Meall a' Bhuiridh. The hills of Ben Inverveigh and Meall Tairbh are located between Black Mount and the Bridge of Orchy.

The Black Mount Deer Forest includes moorland, the mountain, as well as several rivers, burns, lochs, and tarns. The scenic beauty of the area has led to its inclusion the Ben Nevis and Glen Coe National Scenic Area, one of 40 such areas in Scotland.

On 28 August 1980, Black Mount's Forest Lodge became protected as a category B listed building by Historic Scotland.
