My first ever hike. Really enjoyed it.Went anti clockwise , so a good warm up gradual walk before the ascent. Stunning view at the top although very windy. We took a jet boiler and made a cuppa. Trying to get over my fear of heights and met a lot of people on the way up and they were so encouraging, stopping to say hi and cheer me on.

Great view of two lochs, not to difficult really, maybe for half hour up the side of the hill, if traveling in anti clockwise direction.. but I took a couch potatoe with me and made good time.

A nice amble in the woods. Some great scenic views but didn’t find Robs cave!

Well worth the short walk from Callander. Excellent waterfalls where you can get right in the middle of them.

I wish I could have finished it, but way too windy that day !

Walked today in a clockwise direction. Much easier that way. Beautiful views and a good path.

I would consider this a more medium hike that a hard one. That being said it’s huge value for the amount of work. The views are wonderful and the path is well marked. There is a little technical foot placement on some of the down hill sections. It did rain on me (then hailed) most of the time but that’s Scotland.

Done this as part of the west highland way. This was by far my favourite part of the whole walk. It’s hard at times but also a lot of fun.

Nice easy walk. Some nice valley scenery along the way to the falls.

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.
Good views and scenery well marked path easy to follow

Very good walk and very simple, perfect for family’s

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

We booked the Rob Roy way with Hillwalk Tours, so we had B&Bs booked along the way and also had luggage transport, so we only needed to bring our daypacks. We did it in 6 days (18, 15, 26, 24, 16, 16km) and only skipped one short part that's all along a narrow main road.
Absolutely loved the landscapes and the scenery! the people all along the way we're exceptionally friendly and nice. The track is not very well marked most of the way (it follows the cycle route 7 for long parts which is very well signposted, but the parts that differed often weren't marked at all especially between Drymen and Ardeonaig. From Acharn on it was well marked.)

We had an absolutely fantastic stay, the walk wasn't to hard, but still challenging enough for semi fit people to be a good balance.

Especially the stretch from Acharn to Aberfeldy is absolutely stunning - especially the last leg when you go by so many beautiful waterfalls!

Strongly suggest to bring a change of shoes as there's some part over a moor, that will soak even the best shoes completely in bad weather, unless it's wellies...

I did a variation of this hike. I didn’t do it as an out and back but rather went off trail NW. So it was more of a Bynack More and Stac an h-Iolaire hike. Totaled 12.75 miles 3324ft elevation gain and completed it in 7.5hrs. I stopped twice to snack and I’m not sure how many times to take photos. I truly enjoyed the hike but if you’re not up for going off trail the out and back would still be incredible. The link below has a description of the hike and a gpx file you can download.

A wheelchair and crutches jaunt. Wow what sights and natural benefits.

Easy 1.5 miles from the trailhead to the falls and back. Beautiful forest and lovely water.

Really enjoying this route. It’s becoming more popular too. Mainly following National cycling route 7 means there is a little too much tarmac but the stretches which go high above the lochs afford the best views. So go high at every opportunity. The stretch between Ardtalnaig and Aberfeldy is one of the most scenic but all of the stages have there own high point. You won’t be disappointed

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

Great if you like trudging over estate roads & heather. The approach from the ski road cuts quite a bit, but can get tedious. Made up for by its prettiness and location... genuinely worth it.

A pretty moderate (at best) walk. Short, sweet and less hard work than it looks.

A lovely ski tour or a slightly dull hike. To make the walk a 5* day add in Fiacaill Ridge on the approach.

Nice trail walk to the Bracklinn Falls.

Fantastic, with some stunning views!
