Ben Ledi or Ben Venue
by lisamorr1 » Tue Jul 28, 2020 11:54 am
Seen a post from walk highlands regarding avoiding particularly busy hills (specifically Conic Hill, Ben Lomond, Ben A'an) and so I have been wondering whether to do Ben Venue or Ben Ledi this weekend.
I know Ben Ledi will probably be quieter but the views from Ben Venue look super so I guess I wondered if you guys thought it would be particularly busy and a nightmare to park?
Or which walk do you prefer?

Last Monday I arrived at the small car park for Glen Callater at 9 30 AM, en route to Lochnagar and it was only half full. On Friday the North Face car park for Ben Nevis was close to full at 7 15 AM

Beinn Each looks like a good alternative - is the only parking option the layby off the road?

Essentially, yes: though there is also a track entrance about 100m north of the layby where you might be able to squeeze a car in without blocking access. It looks like you could park at The Cabin and walk along the forestry tracks to join the normal route - it would add about a mile in each direction.
