All reviews steep climb car park great walk hill walk clear path worth every step stunning views walking boots final climb takes about hours well worth the effort easy path sun was shining surrounding countryside sunny day summit moulin
Loved it! The views are out of this world, especially after a dusting of snow, well worth the climb. We were exceptionally lucky and had clear blue skies, very cold winds, would be a much tougher climb in bad weather.
I booked a room in Pitlochry on my way to Kinloch Rannoch (to run a marathon). I hadn’t made any plans on this trip. I simply wanted to follow local recommendations. A local from the Moulin (great pub) told me about it. I was out...More
A really enjoyable hill. Not the highest and not the hardest but a good test of stamina particularly for the last half hour or so. Dress for the conditions and as always take extra gear as the weather can change quickly. Great views from the...More
Make sure you come prepared for this climb. The weather was changeable even though it was a lovely day in the town. Not too difficult to complete if you give yourself enough time. There were all ages and abilities on the trail.
Well marked route, with stone 'steps'. Pretty steep in parts and amazing views on a clear day. Fairly busy on a Saturday so would be fine to walk alone. Easy walk in from Pitlochry. We did this as a detour from the Bealach Path which...More
Perched above Pitlochry the walk only gets steep right at the top but the views are breathtaking. The area round the mountain offers many different ways of getting back to town. There is limited parking near the start of the walk out of town so...More
This is the second time we have climbed Ben Vrackie the first was 10 years ago, and it was just as pleasant this time around, for a couple of mid 70ers. The views are terrific, with good walking paths. If you visit Pitlochry and have't...More
We stayed in the town of Pitlochry, so each day we traveled to the surrounding countryside. This is truly a beautiful mountain area of middle Scotland. Lot's of chance for hiking and sight-seeing. Should take at least 2 days in the area.

You can take a train up to Pitlochry. There doesn't seem to be any public transport, but you can easily pick up a map from the tourist information centre and follow the road up to the car park, after which the trail for Ben Vrackie starts.
The walk up to the car park isn't much, especially if you're prepared to hike up to Ben Vrackie.
Sorry it’s taken so long as my internet was down. The Atholl Palace is still there and I’m sure you’d still recognise it it’s been modernised since then but structure is still the same. The area is still as beautiful as ever... More
Sorry it’s taken so long as my internet was down. The Atholl Palace is still there and I’m sure you’d still recognise it it’s been modernised since then but structure is still the same. The area is still as beautiful as ever so worth returning if you liked it before friendly staff and a warm welcome awaits town can be busy with traffic but when out of town very tranquil
