  • An abandoned hiking tour in a beautiful landscape with real Scottish again ... and then all of a sudden half way into a loch two fishermen. Miss, Miss, silence and Scottish beauty.

  • Key tip, once you park at the Moulin car park, check the signage properly: I ended up walking into the grounds of a local house. If you want to get an idea of the time it takes, I'd say 90 minutes each way. You can describe the walk in three parts. The first part is a slow gentle rise passing a very large yellow sign stating what essential items you must have with you (footwear, waterproofs, food, water, compass, map) and how the weather can change. The second part plateaus somewhat as you approve the Loch a'Choire reservoir. The third part starts once you walk past the reservoir. This is the foot of Ben Vrackie with stone steps leading you to the summit via a steep incline. It's so worth the effort and make sure you have walking sticks to help.
  • What a great walk! Can be tough but it worth it to stand at the summit. Lovely views from the start and throughout. A highlight of a week of walking.
  • Heavy Gusts on top poor Visibility but great wee hill with good views on route to the top.
  • Cracking 2.5-3.5hr walk with easy route to follow thanks to good parking and core path network signage. Amazing views across Perthshire from the top.
  • Nice place. You can go up the hill and breathe fresh air. It's kinda windy on the top, but it's refreshing.
