A great introduction for beginners.

Ben Ledi

Ben Ledi

No 2.  Ben Ledi

One of our favourite climbs.  Ben Ledi has marvellous views on the way up, and marvellous views from the top.
At 760m it is a Corbett i.e over 2500ft, but under 3000ft.  It is a straightforward climb, but as always, walkers should be prepared - don't try it in jeans and a t-shirt.  Checkout the report to see just how fast the weather can change!

Ben Venue from the main road

Ben Venue from the main road

No 3.  Ben Venue

Although at 725m, it isn't one of  the highest mountains, it has spectacular views from the top.

There is a fairly long walk in and a bit of scrabbling up and down some rocky bits,  but not really very difficult.

The fact that it is a Graham (so less than 2500ft), may lull you into thinking that it is a gentle stroll but the long walk followed by a steep climb makes for a fairly strenuous ascent, however, the views from the top have to be some of the most scenic in Scotland, and make it all worth while.

Grey Mare's Tail Waterfall

Grey Mare's Tail Waterfall

No 7.  The Grey Mare's Tail

The Grey Mare's Tail waterfall doesn't look like too strenuous a climb when you look up at it, but it is fairly steep - especially the first section.

The path is well maintained and you are advised not to stray off onto the grassy slopes.

At the top of the waterfall, the path is more level, and continues on to Loch Skeen - which is very picturesque and makes the climb worthwhile.

Loch Tay from Sron-a'Chlachain

No 8. Sron a'Chlachain

An ideal walk if you are in the area, and are looking for a climb with a great view, but you don't have a lot of time.

Sron a'Chlachain is not very high, but it is very steep.  It lies beside the village of Killin, and had fantastic views up Loch Tay.
