CLIMB TO SCHIEHALLION SUMMIT - SCOTTISH MUNRO'S

Standing at 1083 metres high Schiehallion is one of Highland Perthshire's most famous Munro's.   A steep but straight forward climb from the Braes of Foss car park get's you up on a steady ridgeway all the way to the summit.  We climbed Schiehallion on the most perfect of days in hot sunshine and a light breeze, rewarded with the most fantastic, uninterrupted views imaginable from the top!
