Fantastic! Deserves five stars but the lack of trail markings knocks it down a smidge. A solid climb gets you started then a series of smaller ups and downs takes you across the circuit until the final descent. Could actually be described as a five-peak route. That first climb has a relatively well-defined trail, but leaving the peak is where it basically ends. On a day with good visibility this wasn’t at all a problem. But if there’s a heavy fog then be certain to carry your map and compass. I ran it in late June and there were many sheep and red deer along the way. Overall, a truly outstanding route.

Excellent path. Some steeper sections on the way up, easy walking coming back down. completely clouded over as we approached the top so can't say much on views but still very dramatic and enjoyable!

steep climb to the top whuch is well worth it just for the amazing view.

We had a great morning hike of over 3 hrs going up making the round on top and coning back. Lovely to take a swim afterwards in the lake.

Very good start and peak however final 2km all de-forested and not very good underfoot, good walk for dogs however have a good recce before going up with young family could find some parts difficult

Ben Vorlich by far the easier of the two. Stuc A’Chroin definitely worth the extra effort. Fun scramble at the top.

Beatiful views

Ben Vorlich a relatively straightforward path. Stuc a chroin requires some climbing and the descent is steep no matter joe you do it.

Fantastic! What a beautiful climb. We did this climb last year while visiting Scotland. I was sore for so many days after. Ha. But I am way out of shape. I still did it. Absolutely a highlight of my life!
