Day Trip: Ben Lawers, Perthshire

4 Jul

If you are a resident of Edinburgh, or just a visitor, may I please implore you to go out hill walking in the highlands.  Perthshire is not far away and it has some spectacular scenery as well as some fascinating geology and botany if you like that kind of thing.  Ben Lawers is particularly beautiful as they have set up a nature reserve.  At the start of the walk there is a fenced off area set up to create a habitat that is not grazed and it’s really interesting to see just how different the plant life is either side of the fence.  There are walks for all abilities in the highlands and I’m sure you can find something to suit you.
