The reserve rises from the shores of Loch Laggan at 250m above sea level up to 1130m on top of Creag Meageidh itself. It is also home to numerous transitions in plant communities ranging from lochshore vegetation near ground level through alpine heaths closer towards the summit ridge where snow buntings dotterels and mountain hares can be found living side by side .
