Great hike that starts at Loch Achray parking lot. £3 for all day parking (there are other hikes in the area too) and you have to pay with coins.

Be warned: this is over 1100 ft elevation gain in just a mile. So it is STEEP. Pretty significant grades but the trail is in great condition and easy to follow and summit. We experienced rain and sun during the short hike with wildly changing temperatures as well due to wind.

Took is 31 minutes to summit and we spent 30 minutes at the top, 27 coming down. Lots of people in various fitness levels and small children and dogs.

A short but exhilarating walk up this big hill. Views at the top are stunning and easily the best in the area.
