Ben Alder sits proudly in the middle of the Grampian Mountains. It is as remote as they come, making a trip here a two-day expedition for all but the fittest or maddest. But even they should consider spending the night, as Benalder Cottage is surely as fine a place to stay as any in Scotland. Sat on the shores of Loch Ericht, a night drinking whisky by the loch will be the perfect way to warm up for an assault on one of Scotland's finest peaks. There are also two Munros to tackle on the way in!
