A 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.
Ben A’an is one of the most popular amongst Scotland’s smaller hills. Often known as the mountain in miniature, its position at the heart of the Trossachs makes it a truly wonderful viewpoint. The car park quickly becomes full on sunny weekends in summer.
There is an excellent path that has recently been rebuilt but the route is still steep. The start point is directly from the car park off the A821.
