Ben Lawers
Collecting Ben Lawers by itself is tricky unless you use the less used East ridge. After a bit of a faff morning and A9 delays we finally left the Lawers Hotel at 13.00. A pleasant path through woodland follows the Lawers Burn and gets out onto the moorland. We missed where the path crossed the burn but easily compensated and took the eastern slopes of Ben Lawers. This offered mixed terrain but a slow but steady ascent to the highest point in Tayside in just over 3 hours enjoying 360 views. Pushed for time we descended the same way in a couple of hours to enjoy a haddock supper back at the hotel.
