Top Five Mountain Hikes



Perthshire is blessed with incredible mountain scenery, sitting as it does at the southern tip of the Scottish Highlands. On a summer's day there isn't much more rewarding than bagging yourself a Munro or a Corbett and revelling in the stunning views from the top of a Perthshire mountain. Here is our pick of Perthshire mountain Hikes.


Ben Vrackie


At 841 metres, Ben Vrackie sits magnificently above the town of Pitlochry with incredible 360 views. It's a fairly straightforward ascent with a lovely lochan to admire on the way. A post hike pint in the Moulin Inn and it's micro brewery near the finish helps top off the day.

Ben Lawyers


Ben Lawers is the 10th highest mountain in Scotland, so this is a high altitude walk. However it starts fairly high up from the access car park and you pass another Munro, Beinn Ghlas on the way up, giving you two Munro's for the price of one I. This hike!.

Ben Chonzie


Situated just north of Crieff, in the right conditions this can be a fairly easy hike to bag the most Southerly Munro in Perthshire. The link below is the hike in from Glen Lednock, there is also opportunity to start the hike from the banks of Loch Turret as well

Schiehallion


When drawing a mountain as a child, the conical shape of Schiehallion is pretty much what you may have drawn. Known at the Fairy Mountain, it can be one of the easier Munro's to ascend and the views to Loch Tummel and Rannoch are spectacular.

Tarmachan Ridge


If scrambling is your thing (a mixture of climbing added into your trekking and, at lower grades like this, not usually requiring ropes) then the Tarmachan Ridge is the place to be. Along with bagging the Munro, Meall an Tarmachan, the views down onto Loch Tay can be spell binding.
