Sunday’s walk goes in for a bit of lateral thinking. Think Schiehallion then think about looking AWAY from Schiehallion across the other side of the B846. What’s more, think Schiehallion and all its glorious views but without the boulder field at the top! Views so good that you are looking DOWN on the spot called “Queen’s View”. Plus you get not just one but two Corbetts and a barytes mine to play with! Even the weather forecast looks good (for walking – not sunbathing) and there’ll almost certainly be an attractive fringe of white on the big stuff nearby – Schiehallion, Lawers and Beinn y Ghlo to name but three. Feeling spoiled yet?
Yes, it’s the unpronounceable Meall Tairneachan and the slightly easier Farragon Hill. https://www.walkhighlands.co.uk/perthshire/farragon-hill.shtml
The start point is at the foot of the Foss Mine track just off the B846 between Aberfeldy and Tummel Bridge. There is no parking on the start of the track itself, but there is limited space on the verge of the main road nearby so carsharing highly recommended. Shout out if you have a spare seat or want one.
Let’s meet there at 10 o’clock for a 10.30 start. That should see us back at the cars and heading to a pub (name tbd) by 5 o’clock.
