Loch Freuchie to Loch Tay along part of the Rob Roy Way
The walk follows part of the Rob Roy Way starting part way along the Glen Quaich road at the road to Glenquaich Lodge. The walk starts heading south west towards Lochan a’Mhuilinn and through Glen Lochan to the hamlet of Auchnafree. From there we head westward along Glen Almond to Ardtalnaig on the South Loch Tay road. This is long walk, mainly on reasonable paths although there are 2 sections of boggy ground to cross. The walk starts at a height of 284m and quickly climbs to 453m before dropping back down to 280m. There is then a more gradual climb up to 400m before dropping down to 135m.
Walk duration 7hrs.
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.
No map available.
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.
