Climbed Ben Vrackie on our honeymoon. It's hard work but worth it, especially when you get to the Loch which is about 600 metres up. Stunning views and definitely worth the trek!

We didn't pick a particularly good day due to the wind and intermittent snow showers, but what we could see was fantastic!

The view from the top on a clear day is stunning. The Moulin inn located at the base of the Ben is ideal for food and a welcome drink after climbing Ben Vrackie.

Been a few times but not this visit too much snow, but it's a fine walk out to the loch and back. If you can get to the summit in good weather there are great views to be had.

Not a huge mountain - in fact some feet short of being a Munro. But the views from the top of Ben Vrackie of the surrounding mountains, including Schiehallion, are just stunning. Well worth a half day's walk!

I had read the other reviews about Ben Vrackie and it wet my appetite for a walk on our honeymoon. It took us ages. We set off at 11am from the carpark which was free. We had quite a pace, but the paths were iced and there was snow on the ground so it was difficult walking. We spoke to... More

Great walk. Views were amazing. Unfortunately we didn't go right to the very top as the mist was very thick so there was nothing to see.

I have climbed Ben Vrackie a few times and it is a nice, gentle climb with some brilliant views from the top.

This is a really beautiful walk to do...unfortunately the day we did it we couldn't manage to get to the top with the weather but managed most of it...but will come back one day to finish what we started. Even in the rain the scenery is stunning...

The path all the way to the top is well sign posted, the pathway is clear and even when it becomes a stairway made from the rock, the walk is manageable for walkers of most abilities. It takes around 2 hours to get to the top at a steady pace.
