Ben Vuirich

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Ben Vuirich is a rather shy Corbett, hidden away in quiet country behind the much better known Ben Vrackie. This circular route includes some sections of rougher going but also offers solitude, overshadowed by the great bulk of nearby Beinn a'Ghlo.


Good track for approach, but pathless and boggy heather slopes to cross on the ascent / descent. Return includes the fording of a large burn, though this can be avoided.

Public Transport

None to start; nearest public transport is rail and bus at Blair Atholl, 4km from start.


Parking at end of public section of Monzie road, near Loch Moraig. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
