Open again

Many of our places are open again! Find a place to visit near you.

A choice of high-level walks take in one or more of the summits, but there are less energetic ways to enjoy the Ben Lawers NNR.

Waymarked trails on the lower slopes offer superb views of the mountains and over Loch Tay, with the possibility of seeing some of the plentiful wildlife in our regenerating habitats.

Downloadable guides are available for the Edramucky and Kiltyrie Hidden History Trails. The latter is accessed from its own small, signposted car park, a short distance east from the junction of the hill road and the A827. The Morenish Woodland Trail is a 1.25-mile waymarked route downhill from the car park.

On the Edramucky Trail (1 mile), which follows the picturesque burn of the same name, you can experience the rich flora and fauna within regenerating habitats. The contrast with the unfenced, open hillside nearby is striking. Younger visitors can follow their own version – the Edramucky Caterpillar Trail – guided by Ed the puss moth caterpillar.

The Kiltyrie Hidden History Trail (1 mile) reveals patterns of survival and adaptation in the landscape and its people. Part of the route follows the original track that once led from the pre-18th-century settlements on the lower ground (closer to the loch) to the outfields where cattle were grazed.

In summer, the ranger service offers a programme of guided walks and activities – please check our Events page for up-to-date details.
