Farragon Hill

Hills & Mountains

    Farragon Hill is a Corbett overlooking Strathtay and the expanse of high heather moorland that stretches west from Pitlochry to Schiehallion.

    Translating from Gaelic as St Fergan’s Hill, Farragon Hill is 2,559 ft (783 m). The hill provides a beautiful walk to the craggy summit in Highland Perthshire.

    The neighbouring hill, Meall Tairneachan, translated as `hill of thunder`, is also a Corbett and the two can easily be climbed together in one day. The mineral barytes is mined in the area and several mines and access tracks are visible high in the hills.

    These hills can be climbed from a start point (mining track through the forest) off the B846 approximately 8 miles (13 km) north west of Aberfeldy.
