Walks

Stob an Aonaich Mhoir from Loch Ranch

This remote hill enjoys a superb position above Loch Ericht, making it a wonderful viewpoint, revealed only at the last moment to most walkers. The usual approach involves many kilometres along a private tarmac road – if you only use a bicycle to help reach one hill, it should probably be this one.

Start at Bridge of Ericht, Loch Rannoch.
