Creag Meagaidh National Nature Reserve
A natural haven
Creag Meagaidh National Nature Reserve (NNR) is the complete mountain experience. From wild mountain plateau to woodland that’s slowly returning to life, Creag Meagaidh feels like the Highlands compressed into one reserve. The dramatic scenery here includes Munro summits, an exposed whaleback ridge and ice-carved gullies.
Whether you want serious hillwalking, ice-climbing, low-level walks, birdwatching or botany, there’s something here for everyone.
