Beautiful scenery all around and particularly from the top of Ben Vrackie. The views of the valley are breathtaking, and the summit is well worth the climb.

Nice walk, higher up it’s all covered in snow and with the sun out it was such a beautiful experience.

Pretty heavy. Very warm in the beginning, rather cold at the top.

Easy to follow trail. Straight up and down. Fairly tough going to reach the summit. Took the dog and she was fine but need to take it steady on the way down.

Great hike! The views of the valley are breathtaking, and the summit is well worth the climb. Unsurprisingly, very windy! But the loch was lovely, and plenty of benches to enjoy the scenery.

Spectacular views on the walk up and from the top. Very steep towards the end so be prepared! Great climb

This was a fun hill walk on a good trail. It was rather blustery and cold since it was Autumn and we were dodging minor rain showers all day but there was also plenty of sunshine. Beautiful scenery all around and particularly from the top of Ben Vrackie.
