On Easter Sunday the first of April Perth & District Hillwalking Club enjoyed a superb winter's walk from Dalnaspidal
to Annat on Loch Rannoch in sunshine visiting the Corbetts Meall na Leitreach and Beinn Mholach taking seven and a half hours to complete. The peaks of Schiehallion, Ben Lui and Ben Nevis were clearly visible in their snow covered glory. Mountain hares, deer, grouse and a mouse were observed.
The Dunalastair hotel in Kinloch Rannoch provided refreshments where the cost of a unit of alcohol was 350p (£7 a pint). Clearly the hotel will experience no difficulties when the minimum price becomes 50p by law. Those preferring a soft drink paid £6.50 for a half pint of orange and lemonade and £6.40 for a cup of tea. The service was good.

Warning Please note that hillwalking when there is snow lying requires an ice-axe, crampons and the knowledge, experience and skill to use them correctly. Summer routes may not be viable or appropriate in winter. See winter information on our skills and safety pages for more information.
