Tops for plants
Famed for its botanical riches, the rare mixture of lime-rich underlying rocks, high altitude and climate combine to make Ben Lawers a haven for a huge diversity of plants. There's everything from the lush vegetation of the lower slopes to tiny arctic-alpine plants like alpine saxifrages and gentians eking out an existence high on the mountain. Watch out for raven rolling acrobatically through the sky or, in summer, the mountain ringlet butterfly battling the wind.
