Schiehallion

Written by on August 12, 2018 in Scottish Mountains with 0 Comments

Just 3 days after bagging 3 more munros in a first visit to the Lawers Group, I headed into the heart of Perthshire to the west of Aberfeldy and parked up at the Braes of Foss. This time it was Schiehallion in my sights. Positioned just south of an east-west line between Loch Tummel  to the east and Loch Rannoch to the west, Schiehallion’s pyramid like shape and pointy top rising to a respectable 3,552 ft above a relatively flat area makes it easy to spot from across much of central Scotland.
