Ben Vrackie reviews
No climbing ropes needed just strong legs. Only about six mile return. Good views. Car parks available on approach. more »
Very nice walk with a 30-minute climb up steps at to the top. No scrambling required. Recommend the route laid down by WalkHighlands as it brings you back round the lochan to the beleaguered path... more »
Not too far from Pitlochry. Straight forward hike from the carpark with signposts for directions. Superb views on a clear day, well worth the climb if you have a spare 3 hours.
Parking.... Keep going up until you hit the wee car park in the woods, saves the legs😀. It's an easy walk on good paths right to the top. At the summit is a viewing plate highlighting various features. Great views with a smattering of benches on route to relax and take in the views.
