Let's face it, Schiehallion is a great mountain, both to climb and to look at. The one problem with climbing Schiehallion though, is that when you're on Schiehallion you can't see Schiehallion on the walk. This simple out-and-back walk takes you to an interesting summit with great views over Perthshire - and of course Schiehallion (shown in the walk photo).

Although a short walk with helpful navigational aids such as walls and fences, this remains however, a serious hill-walk and even in summer the weather can be unpredictable. Snow can remain here into May and so hill-walking skills and proper mountain clothing are appropriate. In winter you will need to carry an ice axe and crampons and be able to use them. However, this is a route with no major dangers and as such is a good practice ground for recently acquired skills, particularly in winter when the slopes are snow-covered.

The whole walk can be done lead free, it is unlikely that any livestock (deer) will be encountered. No serious navigation hazards. I didn't have the dogs with me on this trip but would have happily let them off lead from the car and back again
