Guided day traversing the Meall nan Tarmchan Ridge

Above the western end of Loch Tay and Killin is a chain of rugged peaks. Collectively these are known as the Tarmachan ridge. With fine tracks lower down, faint paths higher up and a car-park at 500m above sea-level this makes for a fine day of hillwalking.
