Ben Vorlich on a cracker of a day. Intent to do Stuc a'chroin also but left it at Ben Vorlich.
I am not quite sure why, perhaps food intake but l struggled with this walk. In the final summit l took 10metres at a time with every muscle aching. The sight of Struc a' Chroin's rocky prow quickly changed my mind and l returned backward.

Ben Vorlich is not technical, nor particularly exciting. In fact would class the long walk in fairly monotonous. We were beat down by four mountain bikers that had carried their bikes up.

Good views at the top and as nearing the summit, and good walk for a beginner.

Loch Earn was a welcome sight on the return and a paddle in the shallows to help the feet and ankles.
