Bothy and a Ben – Allt Sheicheachan
From the Bridge of Tilt car park we walk up the Minigaig way, which is one of the old routes through the Grampian mountains, to the MBA bothy of Allt Sheicheachan, a pleasant location for a lunch stop. We walk up the lower slopes towards the munro of Beinn Dearg, and turn off on a path, which leads us to the lower top of Carn Dearg Mor (657m). This is a little visited top set off from the higher mountains to the northeast, which gives an expansive view across Perthshire. We descend to the path by the Allt Slanaidh, which leads back via lower Glen Tilt to the car park.
Walk duration - 7hrs All on good tracks, apart from 1 1/2km on open hillside.
For Medium, Hard and Extra Hard walks we ask walkers to make sure they have full hillwalking gear, by which we mean definitely the following: Boots, warm clothing, warm/quick drying trousers (not denim jeans), waterproof jacket and over trousers, rucsac, hat, gloves, spare fleece, packed lunch, spare food and drink, small personal first aid kit including any medications, mobile phone, headtorch, and bivvy bag if you have one, and possibly also these other items, depending on personal preference: Gaiters, rucsac cover, walking poles, spare socks, map, compass, GPS, lipsalve, camera.
The nature of hill walking potentially involves leaders or other participants in providing close assistance to others. For everybody’s protection those people classified as ‘vulnerable adults’ or young people under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an appropriate carer or responsible adult. No special arrangements are available to provide independent supervision for vulnerable people, and the accompanying carer takes full responsibility for them. The carer or parent is best placed to judge the capability of their charges.
We do ask that you only bring children on a walk if you are confident that they will be able to complete it comfortably. At all times, children must be accompanied by an appropriate adult who must take full responsibility for them.
3. Lower age limits.
No children under the age of 16 are allowed on Extra Hard or Hard walks. Children over the age of 12 are permitted on Medium and Easy walks provided that they are accompanied by a responsible adult.
In common with other similar events and in consideration for others, dogs are not allowed (guide dogs excepted).
Please do not smoke on walks, out of consideration to others.
