Ben Wyvis National Nature Reserve & Summit Trai

Point Of Interest

Has not been rated.


The Forest Enterprise Scotland car park at the entrance to the reserve is small and fills up quickly. Arrive early if you want a space. There is a picnic table about 700 metres up the path. The mountain Ben Wyvis is a local personality. Its flat ridge dominates the Easter Ross landscape. The hike to the summit rewards you with panoramic views across the Highlands. Dotterel and ptarmigan are found on the mossy summit plateau and the plants here have adapted to the harsh conditions. Although a popular and relatively easy climb, Ben Wyvis should be treated with respect. The 6.5 kilometre route starts from the car park. The path goes through forestry, and then it heads up to An Cabar and along the summit ridge. The average time to the summit and back is 6 hours. Check the weather forecast and change your plans if conditions change on the mountain. Make sure you have a map, compass, hillwalking boots and warm, weatherproof clothing, even in summer. There is no shelter at An Cabar or on the ridge.
