Ben Vorlich and Stuc a'Chroin
These two Munros on the southern fringe of the Highlands appear as an identical pair in many distant views. Closer up, they are more different. Ben Vorlich is a very popular hillwalk from Loch Earn and a fine viewpoint, whilst the continuation to Stuc a'Chroin is a more serious walk with steep, rocky ground.
Straightforward hillwalking to Ben Vorlich. Route on to Stuc a'Chroin involves steep, rocky terrain with some slight scrambling, whilst the return crosses boggy, eroded ground.
No public transport to the start; buses do run to Lochearnhead and St Fillans.
Ardvorlich, Loch Earn.
