Situated perfectly between Loch Katrine and Loch Achray is Ben A’an, Gaelic for “pinnacle”, one of Scotland’s more accessible mountain peaks.
Boasting Trossachs wide views, Ben A’an is one of the most rewarding mountain treks to undertake. You can sometimes see the steamship Sir Walter Scott as she leaves for trips up Loch Katrine. As a relatively easy peak to climb, this is an adventure you can’t afford to miss.
Walks – There are a series of well catalogued hikes, for varying levels of hikers, around and up Ben A’an. The hike from Loch Achray to the summit of Ben A’an is the perfect choice, at 2.5 miles long, for those looking to experience the hilltop view without a complex climb.
Ben A’an rises out of The Great Trossachs Forest, which is everything you could hope for from this stunning setting. Packed with walks and wildlife, it will keep you coming back to the Trossachs time after time.
