I have walked and run many of the Munros in the Lawers Range, above Loch Tay, before. This time, my friend Stew and I decided to take in seven in an A to B route:
- Meall a Choice Leith
- Meall Corranaich
- Beinn Ghlas
- Ben Lawers
- An Stuc
- Meall Garbh
- Meall Greigh.
Start: On roadside past the high Lochan na Lairige
Finish: Ben Lawers Hotel (there is a £5 charge to park for the day).
See my OS Map route.
Brief overview: It is a fantastic route and fairly easy to navigate in good weather. There are a few boggy sections to start with but after that the route is on well trodden paths.
Ben Lawers, in particular, can be busy because it’s a popular Munro. The reason for this is that the start height makes the total ascent relatively low for a Munro.
I felt like the route was either up or down with little flat in between.
