Ben Lawers (Aug 2018)

25 August 2018

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.
