Ben Lawers Nature Reserve
Ben Lawers Nature Reserve
The nature reserve takes in over 8000 acres and includes Perthshire's highest mountain at almost 4000 ft. The reserve takes in 7 Munros (mountains over 3000 feet). The area attracts walkers of all skill levels and botanists drawn by the wide array of arctic-alpine plants, among them many rare species.
The showpiece peak is Ben Lawers, the 10th highest Munro in Scotland at 1,214m (3,984ft), which offers superb views over Loch Tay, westward to Ben Lomond and Glencoe, and a glimpse of the peaks of the Cairngorms to the north. Wildlife abounds, including black grouse, red deer, ptarmigan, and ravens.
