Ben Vrackie Reviews
Not too far from Pitlochry. Straight forward hike from the carpark with signposts for directions. Superb views on a clear day, well worth the climb if you have a spare 3 hours.
Parking.... Keep going up until you hit the wee car park in the woods, saves the legs😀. It's an easy walk on good paths right to the top. At the summit is a viewing plate highlighting various features. Great views with a smattering of benches on route to relax and take in the views.
