Calling all hill walkers!
Visit Crieff Hydro this summer and challenge yourself with a walk up Ben Ledi. Standing at 879m high, Ben Ledi is classified as a Corbett and is the highest peak in the Trossachs; a rewarding climb for veteran hillwalkers and courageous beginners alike.
A short drive from Crieff Hydro to the Trossachs will bring you to Ben Ledi which, when translated into Gaelic, means ‘hill of the long shoulder’. Positioned on the edge of the highlands and known for its excellent view points, it is a favourite with hill walkers with well walked paths. Be sure to bring your wellies though as there are some boggy parts.
Along the walk you will catch breath-taking views of Callander and you may even be able to spot Wallace Monument and Stirling Castle in the distance. Some say Ben Ledi has the most romantic scenery in the Highlands and with an impressive waterfall to view along the walk you will see why.
When the walk is finished, head back to Crieff Hydro and take advantage of the adults only Victorian Spa – ‘the most relaxing place on the resort’ or pamper yourself in the salon with a wide range of treatments to help relax after your climb.
