Schiehallion (Fairy Mountain)

Lying between Loch Tay and Loch Tummel and about 10 miles north of Aberfeldy, is the conical and often misty peak of Schiehallion (3520 ft).
One of Scotland's few freestanding hills, Schiehallion is a popular, fairly easy and inspiring climb, with views on a good day to both sides of the coutry and north to the massed ranks of the Highland peaks.
The path starts at  Braes of Foss, just off the B846 which links Aberfeldy with Kinloch Rannoch. Allow about 4 hours to the top and back.

Unless you are a mountain expert, summer is the best season to tackle Schiehallion - even at this time of year ensure you are fully and appropriately equipped, take a map, compass, and GPS device - tell someone where you are going and roughly how long for.
