The summit of Schiehallion offers fabulous views across Loch Rannoch, the wilds of Rannoch Moor and the hills of the central Highlands as far as Glen Coe.
Thanks to the work of the John Muir Trust, the path up the mountain from the Braes of Foss car park (where there are toilet facilities) is a well-graded and maintained, and is a relatively straightforward walk, making Schiehallion one of the easiest Munros to walk.
With more than 20,000 people climbing this path to the summit annually, ongoing maintenance is necessary to prevent erosion. Thanks to the generosity of its members and supporters, the John Muir Trust recently raised £60,000 to repair paths on Schiehallion this summer and to help minimise future erosion.
