Ben A’an stands at 1,491 ft (454 m) and can be found between Loch Katrine and Loch Achray.
Although Ben A’an is not a high mountain, its position at the heart of the Trossachs makes it a truly wonderful viewpoint. The hill provides an easy walk suitable for families with young children, however, the final ascent to the summit can be more demanding. This is a popular walk and the path will be busy most weekends.
