The ascent of Ben Vorlich is a chance to climb one of the best known Scottish munros. Situated on the south side of Loch Earn and on the northern edge of the Highland Boundary Fault it gives exellent viws of the lowlands. Starting from the shores of Loch Earn at Ardvorlich House the walk follows a well defined path up Glen Vorlich and on to the northern ridge at Sgiath nam Tarmachan. Although the going is relentless, good height is gained and the summit is soon reached (985M) affording excellent views to the south showing teh Gargunnock Hills and Campsie Fells – 35 kilometres away.
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.
