About Ben Lawers

Ben Lawers is the highest mountain in the central Highlands and it is ranked as the tenth highest in Scotland and Britain as a whole, with an elevation of 1,214 m (3,984 ft). It is therefore classified as a Munro, as well as a Marilyn, and it stands and looms large on the north side of Loch Tay.

A path leads from the National Trust for Scotland car park to the summit of this peak via Beinn Ghlas. The mountain’s ridges are mostly covered by grass with few rocky outcrops and steep cliffs between south and west slopes. Ben Lawers is significant for its rare and endangered species of arctic-alpine flowers and wide range of wildlife, and as a result the area has been designated as part of the Ben Lawers National Nature Reserve.
