An old favourite but a great walk for this time of year. There is unlikely to be any significant snow but it is best to be prepared for some at the top. Ben Ledi tempted us with heavy rain showers and then produced excellent snow, sun and wind on the top ( some even saw a Brocken Spectre – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brocken_spectre )
Start at the Ben Vrackie car park which is just northwest of Moulin. Turn left off the A924 immediately behind the Moulin Hotel and follow the road uphill and continue straight ahead at a junction. The car park is a short distance up the lane on the right. Begin the walk by continuing up the tarmac lane, reaching a second higher car park on the right after 250m or so.
Year to one and all. Time to blow the cobwebs away and to start losing some of
the extra pounds that I’m sure everyone has gained.
We start the
year off as usual with a wee look at Ben Ledi. Who knows what the weather will
have in store for us. It could be wind, rain, sunshine (possibly) or even a
touch of the white stuff. So pack your rucksack and be prepared.
at 9.30 for a 10.00 start in the carpark. To find the carpark turn
off the A84, following the sign for Strathyre Forest Cabins, to cross the Garbh
Uisge to the south of Loch Lubnaig; on the far side of the bridge turn left to
reach the parking area. This is very popular and often full in high season so
it is a good idea to arrive sharp.
