Known locally as “the Ben”, Ben Vrackie is a great viewpoint above Pitlochry. Our walk today takes us to the summit and then down to the Pass of Killiecrankie and its spectacular gorge.

Starting in the small settlement of Moulin just above Pitlochry, we walk up the popular tourist path to the summit of Ben Vrackie - known locally as “the Ben”. On the way, we'll tell you about the old hut circles on Moulin Moor. The summit of Ben Vrackie is a great viewpoint. In good weather, it offers superb views in all directions. From the summit, we descend towards the Pass of Killiecrankie and its spectacular gorge. The autumn colours should be fantastic. We'll then return to Moulin. If we have the time, we'll finish with some refreshments at the old Moulin Inn (hopefully the open fire will be on!).

The walk starts and finishes at Moulin. We'll start walking by 09:30. The walk is 17km long with a total ascent of around 950m. It will take about 7 hours and we should finish in Moulin by 16:30.

The walk follows mainly good paths and tracks, but with some wetter ground in a few places.

This is a full mountain day. You will need to bring with you a pair of good walking boots, waterproofs, a small rucksack, some warm spare clothing, walking poles are recommended, hand sanitiser, a face mask and something to eat and drink. You can find out more about the booking arrangements and what you need to bring with you on our website page for the tour. People under 18 must be accompanied by a responsible parent or guardian. Sorry, but no dogs.
