Hillwalking and Munro Bagging


The Munros are the highest mountains in Scotland, 284 mountain tops named after the man who first catalogued them, Sir Hugh Munro.

John Rooke Corbett was a keen member of the Scottish Mountaineering Club in the mid 20th Century. The Corbetts' is a collective name given to all the distinct mountains in Scotland which are between 2,500 feet and
3,000 feet, and which have a
re-ascent of 500 feet on all sides.

Glen Ogle ('Britain's Khyber Pass')


Glenogle is the route between Lochearnhead and Killin, contains
a spectacular section of the former Callander and Oban railway line, which closed to Crianlarich in 1965 due to a rockfall in Glenogle.

There is a viaduct, which is crossed
by footpath as the former trackbed
has now been transformed into an enjoyable walk suitable for all the family.
