Ledard Farm to Loch Achray

This route follows old hill paths to link Ledard Farm on Loch Ard to Loch Achray in the heart of the Trossachs. It crosses the high, rocky slopes of Ben Venue and offers excellent views.


Path up the Ledard Glen is very muddy in places and boggy higher up. Between the two bealachs the path is rocky and rough, and the descent to the treeline is again very wet. Beyond that excellent forest tracks and paths lead to Loch Achray. It should be regarded as a hillwalk and full mountain clothing and equipment should be carried.

Public Transport
