Ben Ledi is a familiar landmark from Callander and the highest mountain in the main part of the Trossachs. It is a very popular hillwalk and its position on the edge of the Highlands makes it an excellent viewpoint.
Well maintained hill path for the ascent, but rougher with some boggy sections on the descent. As with any mountain walk, hillwalking gear must be carried.
None to start (cycle path from Callander to start).
Parking area over bridge from A84.
