The whaleback ridge of Ben Wyvis stands proudly alone, commanding the skyline of the inner Moray Firth. Its upper slopes are a carpet of soft, springy moss, the breeding ground of the dotterel, one of Scotland’s rarest mountain birds. Coires, crags and boulders are the remains of an Ice Age landscape. You might share the view from the summit with a raven or a golden eagle.
