this was a nice walk up ben vrackie at new year freezing cold day but great walking weather, and no crampons reqd,,,,,
we stayed in pitlochry for a week for street party and some good walks,
if you do this walk you need to try the moulin inn for a nice meal at good prices , with great beer and log fires.
