The image below is from the summit of Ben A'an looking north across Loch Katrine. A 1,512ft mountain with its own car park and well marked hiking trail, hinted there would be something special at the top. This has to be one of the most impressive sights in Scotland.

The Map below shows the route to Ben A'an. The hiking car park is right next to the A821, a few hundred yards from the road up to Loch Katrine for the Boat Tours on the Sir Walter Scott. The hiking trail winds its way up through woodland and on to the south side of Ben A'an for some of the best views of the area.

Make sure and take an Ordnance Survey Map and Compass on these hikes, and know how to use them, as in cloud, these mountains can be deadly. In Winter, make sure you have Crampons and an Ice Axe, and know how to use them.
