Pitlochry - Killin climbs ...

July 15, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

Day 1: Ben Y Vrackie near Pitlochry
Weather was not great and rain was expected everywhere !! in the afternoon so we decided to head up early: 7am !!! 
Got to the start of Ben Y Vrackie @ 9am. Misty hills everywhere but it's still beautiful  Once at the top, we couldn't see anything but we met Brian, from Perth, who was here for the 34th time this year only !! Hill climbing seems to be his afternoon walk  Anyway, Brian told us that the McKye Pub down in Pitlochry offers free beer to climbers who can prove they have reached the top. So we got him to take a picture of us. We went back down our separate ways and met back at the pub for a free beer  The staff's Tshirt says Climbed It, Drank It, Loved It  And we even got a free badge. (Offer's only on Saturday  )

 

Day 2: Sron a'Chlachain and Creag Buidhe, near Killin.

Much better weather, very sunny and actually warm for hill climbing. We had sore legs from yesterday and decide for a smaller walk. Didn't realise it was short but strenuous and very steep 
Anyway, what matters is the reward: no free beer today but fantastic views from up there. A great end to a great weekend
