Ben Lawers - the tenth highest Munro - is the culminating point of the sprawling range of mountains on the north side of Loch Tay. Its great height is undermined by a high level car park to begin the ascent, and this is one of the most popular hills in Scotland. A second Munro - Beinn Ghlas - is crossed en-route and is barely noticed by many.
Clear path to summit but remember this walk is at a high level and is very exposed to bad weather.
No public transport to the start.
