Scotland’s tenth highest Munro, Ben Lawers, stretches 1,214m (3,984ft) above Loch Tay. Make it to the summit and you’ll be rewarded with magnificent views of Ben Lomond and Glencoe to the west, and the Cairngorms to the north. It’s part of the Ben Lawers National Nature Reserve, which encompasses nine mountains within the southern slopes of the Ben Lawers and Tarmachan ranges, seven of which are Munros. The area attracts walkers and climbers of all levels, who are drawn to the varied and scenic routes available.The mountain ranges stretch for nine miles so you have a good choice of walks and climbs whatever time of year you visit. Popular routes include the high-level climb that takes in Beinn Ghlas and Ben Lawers. Or try the self-guided circular Edramucky Trail on the lower slopes, which takes you through regenerating woodland and close to the Edramucky Burn to give a stunning view of Loch Tay. There’s a busy programme of guided walks and events in summer, covering everything from getting to grips with navigation to archaeology and beautiful blooms. Check the events page on the website to see what’s on. Ben Lawers is a hugely significant place for botanists as it is renowned for its arctic-alpine flora, many of which are rare and endangered species. The area is also home to a variety of wildlife including red deer, ptarmigan, black grouse and ravens.
