dates & prices to be confirmed Land Only Price: £ SRS: £

This short Highland break is based around Ben Lawers (1,214m), long regarded by botanists as one of the foremost sites for alpine plants in Britain. We’ll visit the three principal locations of botanical interest in the area, with some quite strenuous mountain walking. We’ll explore areas of boggy glacial drift and the eastern side of the mountain for a number of Britain’s rarer sedges and ferns, as well as exploring the rocks around Creag an Lochan and towards the beautiful Glen Lyon. This is an ideal holiday for those wishing to combine botany with walking and outstanding scenery.
