We parked the car at the bottom about 1km past the Blairadam shooting range. Steps at the bottom are really steep initially but it's easier going the further you go. About halfway up they have made a right mess felling all the trees which really...More

Benarty hill will not top the list of challenging climbs for the serious mountaineer but this lower hill still provides a nice walk. It is accessible mainly from the south, ballingry, hill road, and loch ore meadows (longer walk which also goes over Harran Hill)....More

A group of 6 of us did this walk in April, all fit retirees. The views are fantastic, even on a misty day, and there's enough up and down to let you feel you've had a good walk and earned a scone with your coffee...More
