Visit Creag Meagaidh National Nature Reserve

Creag Meagaidh National Nature Reserve (NNR) combines arctic mountain plateau, corries and cliffs with a wood of Highland trees now reclaiming its native home.

Much of the wildlife on this land was lost due to the heavy grazing of woodland and heath by sheep and deer. Today, Scottish Natural Heritage manages Creag Meagaidh NNR.  

Arctic species such as snow bunting, dotterel and mountain hare live high on the mountain tops. Eagles soar and red deer roam – though deer numbers are carefully managed in balance with the trees.

Discover more about this natural haven in our leaflet. It includes a map of the three trails you can take to explore the reserve, plus tips on what to bring with you to enjoy a safe visit.
