Killin to Lochearnhead via Glen Ogle
This linear walk goes through the spectacular Glen Ogle at the top of Loch Earn. The day starts with a bus journey from Lochearnhead to the walk start point at Killin. From Killin we will spend time admiring the spectacular Falls of Dochart before heading south out of Killin along the Rob Roy Way. We start to climb up through the forestry and join the Old Military Road built by Wade in the 18th century. At the Lairig Cheile (our highest point) we enter Glen Ogle and join the disused railway line as we walk south towards Lochearnhead.
As this walk requires a bus journey it is important to meet at the start point in good time. There is a 15 minute walk to the bus stop and there is only one bus in the morning at 9.17am! If bus times change requiring a change of start time all walkers will be informed in good time.
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.
