Staying in Moulin and tackled Ben Vrackie with 3 generations of the family. Good easy walking to the Loch however it is a steep climb thereafter to the summit using a stepped path, worth it for the stunning views. Took us 3.5 hours round trip...More

Took us about 4 hours round trip hiking. Great hike but uphill, so not for those not used to walking/hiking long distances. Got some lovely pictures from the top.

Such an easy hill to get to, good parking, well maintained paths and a good work out to boot with stunning scenery

A decent few hours walking just outside the quaint village of Pitlochry. The path is well defined and signposted, unfortunately a good deal of the walk is like climbing stairs - with the rock-formed path but well worth the effort for the view.

Great walk - no problems in navigation - path is obvious, and well constructed to avoid erosion on steep section en route to summit.

A walk starting at the car park just past Moulin lasts around 4 hours. The views of Pitlochry and the surrounding countryside on the way up are spectacular. The climb can be a bit relentless at times if you aren't too fit but there are...More

We were lucky enough to have a fine day for the walk up Ben Y Vrackie. The carpark at the start of the walk is well signposted, as is the walk. The last steep section to the summit is quite hard going but well worth...More

Gentle climb at the beginning with a moderately steep climb at the end. Wonderful views at the top when clear. Can be very windy and cold.
