People have been ‘bagging Munros’ for centuries, though the number of climbers bagging all 283 has soared over the last 30 years. Challenging routes, incredible scenic pay offs and great surrounding villages make the Munro Mountains the most popular for hill walking in Scotland.
As we have over 60 activities on offer here at Crieff Hydro, we understand the value of fresh air, a bit of exercise and, of course, good company along the way.
So when you stay with us, you can count on us to help you bag a Munro or two! We’re conveniently located within an hour of two great climbs, and we will ensure that your day trip to either goes perfectly to plan.
For an intensive day out, we recommend Ben Lawyers, where you can bag not just one but seven Munros! This series of connected mountains sits along the north banks of the beautiful Loch Tay, and each peak flows into the next in a selection of grassy paths among the finest in Scotland.Don’t fret if that sounds overwhelming, as there is another popular Munro even closer. The Schiehallion is a standalone mountain with an average route length of 4.5km. It is one of the most popular Loch Tay walks, as it is easily accessible and promises a leisurely stroll.
Schiehallion is often described as the centre of Scotland – in fact, because of its symmetry, it was even chosen for use in an experiment that aimed to calculate the mass of the World. But beyond scientific practicality, its ideal location means spectacular views every which way.
And since Scottish hill walking societies continue to flock to Crieff Hydro every year, it seems that even the experts love our great location. Or is it our elaborate, adult only Victorian spa for refreshing breaks after an invigorating day? Or our award winning Scottish cuisine, so hearty many feel revived enough to set out Munro climbing all over again?
Find out why Crieff Hydro is Scotland’s favourite leisure resort and discover how our beautiful rural setting on a 900 acre estate, complete with over 60 on site activities, will make the perfect crash pad for your Munro bagging adventure!
