A recently-upgraded path easily leads walkers from a car park on the A821, on the banks of pretty Loch Achray, to reach the 454m summit of Ben A’an.
Rarely taxing, although a little steep in places, the walk of around 4km might be short but it offers a surprisingly big experience.
For a small hill you’ll enjoy many of the ingredients of a mountain hike, such as atmospheric forest, open moorlands, views of crags and a superb vista of the surrounding landscape at the top. Return on the same path.

We want everyone to enjoy the National Park in a safe and responsible manner. Be aware that the owners of the land you are crossing might be engaged in deer management and other land management activities and you can help minimise the chance of disturbance. Read more about it in the Heading to the Hills practical guide.
Hiking and hillwalking are risk sports. Always ensure you are prepared before heading out to the hills – information and practical advice on how to stay safe can be found by reading about Safety and skills in the mountains from Mountaineering Scotland.
