Ben Lawers

With an elevation of 1,214 m (3,983 ft), Ben Lawers is the highest mountain in the southern area of the Scottish Highlands and the county of Perth and Kinross. It lies to the north of Loch Tay and is the highest of a long ridge that includes seven other Munros.

An ascent to the summit can be made from Ben Lawers car park, located south-east of the mountain. From here, a footpath leads to the summit by way of the peak Beinn Ghlas.

The area is regarded by botanists to be one of the richest areas for alpine flora in the UK. There is an abundance of rare alpine plants, as a result, it is a Special Area of Conservation.
