Ben Aigan

Ben Aigan lies to the east of Rothes, the north east of Craigellachie and to the east of the River Spey which flows along the foot of its western and northern slopes. Rising to a height of 471m (1546 feet) and extensively forested apart from the summit cone, the top of Ben Aigan provides magnificent views over Speyside, south to Ben Rinnes, and away to the north over the Moray Firth to the hills of Sutherland

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.

Warning – Ben Aigan has several dedicated mountain bike trails where bikes will be travelling at speed and not necessarily expecting pedestrians. As a walker, you are advised to avoid these routes.
