• Ben Lawers
Distance: 20 km; duration: 7.5 hours
One of two routes to gain access to the summit, this ridge walk takes you to the top but finishes at a different point along the A827. The Munro dominates the landscape around Loch Tay, and entails a strenuous up and down trek and some easy scrambling to reach the top.
Distance: 10 km; duration: 3.5 hours
With its singular ridge flanked by steps sides, this short linear route logically takes you up the Munro’s gentler eastern slopes heading west to the summit. There are extensive views from the peak of Loch Tay, Loch Rannoch and surrounding areas.
• Ben Chonzie via Glen Lednock
Distance: 12.5 km; duration: 4 - 5 hours
By Munro standards, the ascent of Ben Chonzie, taking the Glen Lednock route, is relatively easy. The highest peak around, there are good views of Loch Turret as you skirt the flank of the mountain. Be on the lookout for Ben Chonzie’s substantial population of mountain hares, which change coat from brown to white in the winter.
• Creag Mhor and Beinn Heasgarnich
Distance: 24.25 km; duration: 7 - 10 hours
Perhaps the most challenging outing for Munro baggers in this part of the Highlands, you’ll need to draw on your experience and expertise when tackling these two peaks. With a steep, craggy ascent on Creag Mhor, difficult pathless terrain and vast areas of bogland on Beinn Heasgarnich, you’ll need to persevere to earn your reward of spectacular vantage points.
• Carn Gorm, Meall Garbh, Carn Mairg & Creag Mhor
Distance: 18 km; duration: 6 - 8 hours
You’ll bag four Munros in one go in this circular walk around the spacious plateau above Glen Lyon. As well as spectacular views down the glen, you’ll also catch sight of Ben Lawers and Loch Rannoch on a clear day.
