This lovely half-day walk from the ancient village of Moulin to the Bealach and Loch a' Choire below the summit slopes of Ben Vrackie. When we finish, we might be able to call into the old Moulin Inn for some refreshments.
Starting in the ancient village of Moulin, just above Pitlochry, we walk up the popular tourist path to the Bealach (570m). On the way, we'll admire the panoramic views over Moulin Moor, Pitlochry and Strath Tummel. Moulin Moor has a rich history of Bronze Age hut circles. From the Bealach, we can admire the view westwards towards Glencoe. From here, we follow the rough path to Loch a' Choire where we can view the impressive summit slopes of Ben Vrackie. We'll then return to Moulin. If we have the time, we'll finish with some refreshments in the old Moulin Inn (hopefully the open fire will be on!).
The walk follows mainly good paths and tracks, but with some wetter ground in a few places. The walk starts and finishes in Moulin. The walk is 8km with a total ascent of 450m and will take approx 4 hours. We can run the walk in the morning (starting at 930am) or the afternoon (starting at 1pm).
You will need to bring with you a pair of good trekking shoes or boots, waterproofs, a small rucksack, some warm spare clothing, hand sanitiser, a face mask and something to eat and drink. Children over the age of 12 are welcome on this walk but they must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. Sorry, but no dogs.
