Introduction to ridge walking

Date: 6th October 2019

Price: £30.00

Sunday 6th October 2019 at 09:00. A 12 km walk lasting between 6 and 8 hours.

This is a level 2 walk with a very short section of grade 1 scrambling where hands may be needed. 

Meall nan Tarmachan is a quick and easy Munro to ascend from the NTS car park on the road to Glen Lyon. To do this route justice though, it's best to not descend the way you came, but to continue on along the ridge to experience the terrain which provides a chance to practise some very mild Grade 1 scrambling and a short, narrow section of ridge to walk across. Also, a fantastic viewpoint to soak up the stunning views of Loch Tay and the Perthshire countryside.

We will meet in the McLaren Hall car park, Main Street, Killin, FK21 8UW at 09:00 before driving the last few miles together to the NTS car park which is off the A827 near Mornish on the Glen Lyon road. The car park has an elevation of about 430m which gives a high starting point for this walk.

Our day will be about route finding, scrambling and movement on steep terrain.

We will finish our day in the Killin Hotel for a light refreshment and a blether.
