In Sutherland, sitting on the eastern edge of Reay Forest, Ben Hee rises above Loch Merkland.

A track crosses from Loch Merkland through Bealach nam Meirleach to the Hope road and it is from this that most ascents up Ben Hee are made. This could allow the Graham hills of Carn an Tionail and Beinn Direach to be combined with Ben Hee into one outing.

Alternatively, a short and direct route from the mast above Loch Merkland requires a distance of just 8km.
