Lovely scenic route, clear fresh air, peaceful natural surroundings - well worth the challenging hike to the top! Easy to locate the car park (£2, Jun '18) and pathways are well maintained and signposted at the start of the walk.

Great path although we walked when it was 24 degrees which is not recommended. Good car park, well signposted - take a deep breath a go for it when in the area !!

The drive up from Loch Tay is fabulous. We went up to the viaduct past loads of gorgeous little lambs to take in the view which is one of the best we have seen on our holiday. Well worth a drive or rather challenging walk!

Worth the walk through the beautiful reserve. Waterfalls just beautiful. Probably best to wear good walking shoes or boots

Great walk with Stanley and Poppy. Well worth a trip! Great views. Not good for small children and access is limited. Some good paths but quite rough and steep climbs!

Well marked trails, away from the crowds, and challenging and rewarding views. The locals told us about a different route back to the car park and it was loaded with valley views and dozens of mountain springs running along the trail. The views are amazing...More

We walked the Nature Trail at Ben Lawyers with our 3 dogs. Quite steep, but manageable. We took the left hand route, planning to do the loop down the right hand side, but when we got to the top the signage told us we had...More
