General information

Ben Vorlich and Stuc a Chroin

These two Munros are on the southern fringe of the Highlands are well viewed on the approaches to Stirling and can dominate the view ahead of you as you drive up the M90.  Ben Vorlich (984m) is a very popular hill walk from Loch Earn and is a fine viewpoint.  The climb up Ben Vorlich is straightforward on a good mountain path but is quite sustained while the walk continuation to Stùc a' Chròin (975m) is a more serious walk with sections of steep, rocky ground and short sections of scrambling.  There is the option to shorten the walk and turn back at Ben Vorlich.

We will climb the mountain from Loch Earn, about 10 miles (16km) - about 6 to 7 hours.

The photographs of Ben Vorlich were taken on a GOC Crianlarich meet in November 2019.
