Beinn Dearg N.B. PLEASE – WALK START TIME NOW 08:30
The isolated position of Beinn Dearg in the hills above Blair Atholl makes for a long day of walking. However at a height of 1008m Beinn Dearg provides extensive views of all the surrounding hills and particularly the Cairngorms to the north east and an opportunity to walk in a remote part of the Grampian mountains. The lengthy route is mainly on hill tracks and paths so walking is generally good. There is some broken ground on the summit ridge.
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.
