Ben Lawers (Hill of the Loud Stream)

Dominating the northern side of Loch Tay is moody Ben Lawers (3984 ft), Perthshire's highest mountain.
From the top there are incredible views towards both the Atlantic and the North Sea, and between the south and west ridges are steep crumbling cliffs on which some of Britain's most beautiful alpine flowers grow.
The ascent should not be tackled unless you are properly equipped for Scottish hill walking, and takes around three hours from the now disused NTS visitor centre.
