Pronounced ‘Ben A’, this glorious mountain range was the first in Britain to gain National Nature Reserve status in 1951, and encompasses a range of habitats from pine forests on the shores of Loch Mare to moorland and rugge, mountain peaks. The Aultroy Visitor Centre just outside Kinlochewe is a great place to get your bearings while, a few miles on towards Gairloch, at Coille na
Glas-Leitir car park, there is a choice of two excellent trails: one through the Scots pine woodland and one more challenging 4-mile (6.5-km) mountain hike which offers fantastic views across Loch Mare to Slioch mountain.
