My Granny’s favorite mountain was Ben Lawers. She grew up in nearby Aberfeldy. During her youth she climbed Ben Lawers many times. Before she passed away she asked to be cremated so that her ashes could be spread upon the top.
So if you ever climb it, say hello to my granny. Knowing her, she will be haunting the trig point shouting at anyone nearby to stop chatting so she can concentrate on her crossword.
The Etape caledonia (https://www.etapecaledonia.co.uk/) uses some of the roads near Ben Lawers but I think this route is much more beautiful.
It can be brutal on a bad weather day but when the weather is nice its a steady climb but no big gradients.
Views across Loch Tay on the way up. Views into Glen Lyon on the way down. Scotland at its best.
It’s normally a quiet road but there may be a few cars on the first part of the climb heading to the Ben Lawers car park to start climbing.
I parked in Aberfeldy. There is plenty of parking.
There are public toilets in Aberfeldy but bring 20p to use them
Glen Lyon has an amazing cafe at the bottom of the descent of Ben Lawers. Soups, sausage rolls and great home baking. https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Restaurant_Review-g551795-d2075739-Reviews-Glenlyon_tea_room-Aberfeldy_Perth_and_Kinross_Scotland.html
