Not sure why this is rated as EASY? It was a pretty tough hike up to the first lake, 2.6 miles nearly all uphill, and nearly all over boulder-strewn narrow paths. It was pretty warm, mid 80's and we're in our 50s and we dawdled a bit and rested but it took us nearly 2.5 hours to get to the first lake. It was beautiful every step of the way but this is not an easy trail. We've done 5 miles hikes on trails listed as moderate with much more ease.

Pretty tough hike up to the lake but worth the trip. Lots of people and dogs though!
If you get to this point make sure you make it up to the High Loch Leven. Fewer people too! The added hike only adds about 20 minutes.
