We visited in order to climb Ben Ghlas and Ben Lawers. None of us were seasoned hikers but the route was well maintained and easy to follow. The views are spectacular. Unfortunately bad weather caused us to turn back after Ben Ghlas (although it cleared...More

Easy access by car - it is single track but with plenty of Passing Places. Lots of sheep wandering around the roads but all good if you drive slowly. There is a carpark to allow you to get out for a walk. But we drove...More

Parked in the car park 2.5 miles up from the main A826 road. Climbed to the top of Bein Glas and then Ben Lawers - hard work but well worth the climb for the views at the top. On a clear day you are sitting...More

Excellent site to hike around. The temp was about 25 °C and almost too walk in. The route is well sign posted and keeps a five year old marching on in good spirits looking for the next marker. The flora and fauna is quite spectacular...More

Lovely scenic route, clear fresh air, peaceful natural surroundings - well worth the challenging hike to the top! Easy to locate the car park (£2, Jun '18) and pathways are well maintained and signposted at the start of the walk.

The drive up from Loch Tay is fabulous. We went up to the viaduct past loads of gorgeous little lambs to take in the view which is one of the best we have seen on our holiday. Well worth a drive or rather challenging walk!

Ben Lawers is a Munro mountain and we drove to the car park managed by National Trust for Scotland. We are not hikers so we thought that we would not stay on the mountain. However, the access was easy on a single track road and...More
