Wow man this was the first time we went hillwalking coz some website said it was a starter hill. If that was a starter hill then I’m my aunties granny. Don’t get me wrong what a beautiful walk but it’s not for the light hearted coz it’s pretty steep an pretty exhausting but defo worth the sense of achievement and views at the top. I really wouldn’t start here as an amateur but defo give it a go

I'm one of the least experienced people on this site, so not greatly qualified to give advice, but I would say Ben A'an is a great walk to give anyone just beginning, or not used, hillwalking, the feel if the pastime is for them. I'm sure it must have inspired many to bigger hills.
