Creag Meagaidh National Nature Reserve

Nature Centres & Reserves

Aberarder, Kinloch Laggan, By Newtonmore, Inverness-shire, PH20 1BX

    Creag Meagaidh at 1,128 m high is a Scottish Munro (a mountain over 3,000 ft or 914 m in height).

    Creag Meagaidh feels like the Highlands compressed into one nature reserve. Rare mountain plants like woolly willow and Highland saxifrage battle against the elements, whilst black grouse flourish in the combination of woodland and open moorland. With Munro summits, an exposed whaleback ridge and ice-carved gullies, Creag Meagaidh is the complete mountain experience.

    Facilities include car parking, interpretive panels and recreation areas. There is a 3 mile path to Coire Lochan and the first 900 m is suitable for all abilities. There is also a circular route suitable for all abilities.
