The first National Nature Reserve of Britain, the Beinn Eighe reserve consists of around 10,500 acres with heights reaching 3000ft. The wildlife includes red deer, eagles and pine martin.
|The walk or nature trail starts at a car park about 1 mile west of Kinlochewe and travels firstly up through some forestry, mainly Scot's pines and opens out onto the hillside where fine views of Slioch, Loch Maree and the Kinlochewe river can be enjoyed|
The trail almost reaches Meall a Ghiuthais at 887 metres and for the hardier of walkers the walk can be continued along the Beinn Eighe ridge, however the nature trail itself can be comfortably traversed in around 2hrs.
