Wonderful hike on our first full day in Scotland. We went into the tourist information office and asked for paths and it took awhile to find one we settled on. The views are fabulous and the path quite well marked. Finding the trailhead took a couple minutes. We parked at the public car park across from the Moulin hotel and wandered up from there. There is an additional parking lot further up the path (3-5 minutes) but it was less secure and we wanted to grab some food at the Moulin pub afterwards (fabulous food and local beer). The hike itself was great though shorter than what we had been told at the tourism office (1h 20min up and 40min down). The hike was a slow steady climb until the end which was at a fair pitch. An excellent hike that I would definitely recommend!

This is a lovely Corbett to climb at 841 metres with rewarding views at the top. Inexperienced walkers should take note of the sign not to continue near the beginning without appropriate clothing. It can be very windy and a little bit treacherous as the last section especially is very steep. After descending you can continue the walk on to Killikrankie which is also very good.

The initial climb is an average uphill walk. The last quarter is climbing up rock steps which was a good exercise.

At the top are great views of the surrounding area. The route is clear from the car park. We managed it in two and a half hours and we're definitely not fitness freaks.

Very nice walk from Moulin (near Pitlochry) up to the top. The last 1 or 2 miles are steep but the view you get from the top make it up for the effort.
Maybe not for everybody but doable with a reasonable training.
