Beinn Eighe

With a cluster of mountain peaks, ancient pinewoods, secretive crossbills and soaring golden eagles, it's no wonder that Beinn Eighe was Britain's first National Nature Reserve. From a distance the pale scree slopes on the mountain-side look like barren fields of snow, but get up close and you'll be amazed by the diversity of wildlife that thrives on this reserve.
If you would like to find out more about Beinn Eighe, the visitor centre, which is just outside Kinlochewe, is open from Easter to October. Three trails, including all-ability paths, start here and are open all year.
For those looking for a longer walk the woodland (1 kms) and mountain (6 kms) trails leave from the Coire na Glas Leitr car park on the shores of Loch Maree. The woodland trail explores the ancient pine forest which clings to the lower slopes while the mountain trail offers a more strenuous opportunity to venture into the mountain environment.
