With a cluster of mountain peaks, ancient pinewoods and soaring golden eagles, it’s no wonder that Beinn Eighe was chosen as 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. Take advantage of the trail network here that offers something for everyone, whatever the weather.
For visitors who would like to find out more about the reserve, there’s a visitor centre open from Easter to October just outside Kinlochewe. The three trails which start here are open all year and a further path links the visitor centre with the village of Kinlochewe.
Facilities include a visitor centre, trails for all abilities, parking and cycle rack, picnic site, viewpoint, interpretive panels, basic camp site, woodland trails and steep mountain trails for the more adventurous.
