Ben Chonzie

Climb Crieff’s local munro.  An excellent opportunity for those new to hill walking to ‘bag a munro’.  The broad rounded summit of Chonzie may not be spectacular but the walk along the Turret reservoir and up through the crags to the summit makes for an interseting and enjoyable excursion with ample opportunity to see red deer, mountain hare and a variety of interesting plants.

We will start from the car park at the Loch Turret dam. We then follow the track up the east side of the loch, eventually making for Lochan Uaine. From here we will aim north at first, avoiding broken crags, before crossing the plateau to the summit. The return will be made over Meall na Seide and Carn Chois.

The first part of the route is over a good track. Then we climb to the plateau up steep grassy slopes with no defined track. The way back is less steep but again there is no defined track. Good ankle supporting footwear is a must.

1. Risk.
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.

2. Children.
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.

4. Dogs.
In common with other similar events and in consideration for others, dogs are not allowed (guide dogs excepted).

5. Smoking.
Please do not smoke on walks, out of consideration to others.
