Explore the lovely Ochils with Ben Dolphin, Ramblers Scotland’s president, journalist, blogger, countryside ranger and Walkhighlands columnist. https://twitter.com/countrysideben
If you have never walked with the Ramblers before, this is a great opportunity to join Ben for a stunning walk in good company. It’s free and all are welcome.
"A lofty hillwalk on the quieter side of the Ochils, and a local favourite circular walk of mine. We start the ascent in the forest before emerging onto the open hillside of Innerdownie, with superb views opening up across Kinross-shire to the nearby Lomond Hills. We then follow the ridge line to Tarmangie Hill before doubling back around towards Glensherup Reservoir and the impressive new native woodlands. On the way down we’ll take in the smaller summit of Ben Shee, which has great views through Glen Eagles".
To register your interest in attending please email email@example.com by Thursday 27 June. Ramblers members are also very welcome, numbers will be limited so book early! Please state your membership number in the email.

Start time: 10:00
This is a circular walk
Good forestry tracks to start and to finish, but the high Ochils can be famously soggy underfoot so mind you have decent footwear. Shelter is scarce up there too, so as ever on high level walks make sure you have warm clothes and waterproofs to keep the cold out.
Ascent: 600 m / 1969 feet
Surroundings: Open country, Hill, Lake, pond, reservoir
Theme: Wildlife, nature, Adventure
