My wife and I climbed this when up at Pitlochry for a long weekend, we climbed it on the Monday and cracked it with the weather it was sunny and warm. The path in to the base of the hill was well marked and easy to follow from the car park and a easy walk takes you up and round the side of killiecrankie and opens up at loch a'Choire. Once passed the loch you are at the base of ben vrackie the climb is rather steep but there are steps all the way up the climb to the summit, once at the top if the weather is kind there are amazing views to be had, this is a hill we will visit again :D
