OTHER INFORMATION:
Climbing Ben Aigan

As with most hills in Scotland, there are several possible routes to the summit. The route featured on the map starts at a Forestry Commission car park near Auchlunkart just off the A95 Craigellachie to Keith road. Follow forest roads to the top of the hill. It is also possible, and perhaps more interesting, to climb the hill using the disused forest road which strikes uphill from west of Tanzie (see map). There is very limited parking here, at a Forestry Commission barrier.
