The Ben Lawers range of hills dominate the north side of Loch Tay forming a sweeping ridge that includes 7 Munros. Ben Lawers is actually the 10th highest mountain in the UK and is famous for it’s rare Alpine and Arctic wildflowers. This is one of the reasons why the southern slopes are now owned by the National Trust for Scotland and are managed as a National Nature Reserve. There is an excellent car park fairly high on the hillside that the main paths up Ben Lawers and neighbouring Meall nan Tarmachan leave from. A guided walk up Ben Lawers can combine climbing the Munros with looking for wildflowers and offers walks to suit every ability.
This guided walk on Ben Lawers will traverse all 7 Munros in a linear route making it a strenuous day. We will meet at the walkers car park at The Ben Lawers Hotel where we can pay to leave some cars for the day. The plan is to car share round to the start of the walk north of Lochan na Lairige. Our route crosses a corrie to climb Meall a’Choire Leith and a good ridge leads us to Meall Corranaich. After this there is a steep descent to reach beallach before we climb Beinn Ghlas. There is an excellent path to the summit of Ben Lawers and then a lovely walk round to An Stuc. It’s a very steep descent from here with some scrambling to continue to Meall Garbh. Easy walking leads us up Meall Greigh before a mainly grassy descent to the car park and refreshments!
