Ben Wyvis stands at an elevation of 1,046 m (3,432 ft) in Easter Ross in the Ross and Cromarty area of Highland in northern Scotland. There are four listed summits: Glas Leathad Mor is the highest, but the other three, Tom a’Choinnich, An Cabar and Glas Leathad Beag, are all high enough to warrant Munro Top status.
Ben Wyvis has been designated a National Nature Reserve and a Special Protection Area: unlike many other Scottish heather or grass-covered mountains, this one’s summit ridge is carpeted with a woolly hair moss and its lower reaches support a variety of arctic-alpine plant life. It is also an important breeding ground for the Eurasian dotterel.
The usual route of ascent begins in the west, with good access from the A835 road, through forested land owned by the Forestry Commission.
