Coronavirus / Covid-19
Following recent changes in government advice regarding Covid-19 to avoid all non-essential travel and maintain social distancing, all walks and other activities are cancelled until the end of April.
We will continue to review the situation with regard to events beyond April. Further information can be found here, and will be udpated in due course.
Its not very high at only 454 meters but Ben A'an is a mountain in miniature that towers above you as you walk trough the woods from Loch Achray. The small rocky summit is an airy spot with stunning views of Loch Katrine and Ben Venue opposite. This walk is classed as a mountain walk; although it is quite short, the paths are steep and rocky. The walk is suitable for walkers with a reasonable amount of fitness but who may never have been up a mountain before.
We will climb the mountain from Loch Achray, about a 5 mile circuit (9km) - 4-5 hours.
Terrain / Difficulty
A fairly easy mountain walk. Good ascent path, some steep sections. The descent route is less clear, is steep and might be muddy.
