Ben Vuirich

I had another free midweek day and the chance to go with a friend somewhere 'up the A9', on the condition that I made my way home by public transport. The selected hill was Ben Vuirich and proved a good choice on the day. Weather was reasonable with a minimum of hail showers ... cool wind and warm sun and not too wet underfoot. Great views and mainly good visibility.

Really like that pic of the loch with the Cairngorms behind, very dramatic and imposing!

You certainly made the best of the hill. This corbett is not the easiest to get to and is rather outdone by the Ben a Glo massif. Used to live in the area but never managed it.

Thanks for comments. I really enjoyed the walk which was quite long (for me). As with many lower hills the views are quite special, we could even see the Firth of Tay far to the south east
