Ben Vorlich, Perthshire

On Friday I hiked up Ben Vorlich in Perthshire. Ben Vorlich is a munro, rising to 985 m (3231 ft), and it's been on my 'To Do' list for a long time, having viewed it from my walks in the Ochil Hills on many occasions. This was my 25th Munro.

My otherhalf hiked this one and it's neighbour, Stuc a Chroin, a few years ago when they were in winter's grip, but I'm glad to say that the snow was now only to be found in a few spots upon the hill. My Labrador was pleased to see a nice patch of snow by the summit as he likes nothing better than rolling in it!

It was a beautiful sunny day, with a keen NE wind. The views were pretty clear, stretching across to Ben Nevis.
