"Ben Vorlich is one of my closest Munros I guess, and this is a straight forward ‘there and back’ walk up this popular hill. It affords wonderful views north across Loch Earn to the Lawers massif, and expansive views south to the Central Belt. I wouldn’t go so far as to say that any one Munro is easy, but certainly Ben Vorlich has one of the more accessible and straight-forward ascents. That said, no Scottish hill should ever be underestimated so we’ll take it nice and gently."
