Scottish Natural Heritage
Beinn Eighe, Kinlochewe, Achnasheen, Wester Ross , IV22 2PA
With a cluster of mountain peaks, ancient pinewoods, secretive crossbills and soaring golden eagles, it's no wonder that Beinn Eighe was 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.
