Walking Ben Lawers, Rannoch and Atholl
Mountains and glens of Highland Perthshire
Walking guidebook to the highlands of Perthshire. Areas include Pitlochry, Rannoch, Aberfeldy, Ben Lawers and Ben Alder. 80 graded routes between Stirling and the Cairngorms explore grassy mountains and include 42 Munros, 22 selected Corbetts, 15 smaller hills and the Gaick and Minigaig passes. A range of walks for all abilities.
SeasonsApril to August for all routes, with April and May the best of all; autumn is great under the trees, but not necessarily on the hills with gales and rain fairly common and some stalking season restrictions mid-August to 21 October; winter is good for the low-level routes and can also be magnificent on the high mountains for those suitably experienced and equipped
