Ben Vrackie route description

Did this walk last Saturday. but varied the route and came in from Killiecrankie. Went up Meall an Daimh before Ben Vrackie from the NW. Excellent weather although the MWIS forecast was spot on with strong winds from the south late afternoon. Amazing that even on a relatively easy mountain, folk still were caught out...freezing on the summit!!

Good views of beinn a'Ghlo for the previous fortnight and an enjoyable day. Wasn't too keen on the steps though. Although I understand the need for conservation, they take away the fun. Would be very dodgy in the wet!! headed off round the lochan back to Killiecrankie. We'd booked a room at the Moulin Inn, which you pass on the described route. Scottish pub of the year 2007...you can see why...you have to try it!!
