Lassintullich to Fortingall

A rewarding walk through remote Perthshire countryside below Schiehallion, with a chance to look for an ancient cave and at some old shielings. Our walk starts in the vicinity of Loch Rannoch and follows the track up from Lassintullich.  As we gain hight we pass to the bealeach to the west of Schiehallion and be able to appreciate the full length of the summit ridge.  We then descend into upper Gleann Mor. We could have a look for Uamh Tom a’ Mhor-thir (a cave) and at some remote old shielings. In this remote area we will be able to see red deer, mountain hare and hopefully a variety of raptors.  After crossing the Allt Creag a’ Mhadaidh, have a quick look at Glenmore bothy and then follow the track SE to Fortingall. Enjoy superb views to the south and Loch Tay as you descend into Fortingall. We finish our walk at the Fortingall Hotel and the opportunity of somewell deserved refreshments at the pub!

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.
