Ben Ledi Walk
Climb to this popular viewpoint on this challenging walk in the Trossachs. The mountain gives fabulous views over the woodland and lochs of the Queen Elizabeth Forest Park.
There's a car park at Creag Dhubh, just off the A84, about 2 miles west of Callander. From here you can pick up the tracks to take you through woodland and then up on to the mountain peak. It's about a 2.5 climb from the car park to the 879 m (2,884 ft) summit of Ben Ledi. There's fabulous views of Loch Lubnaig and Callander, while on a clear day you can see as far as the Wallace Monument and Stirling Castle. There's also splendid views of some of the most famous mountains of the area including Ben Lawers and Ben Lomond.
To extend your exercise in the area you could enjoy a waterside cycle or walk along Loch Lubnaig and visit the delightful Falls of Leny on the way. The Rob Roy Way also passes through the area so you could futher explore the Queen Elizabeth Forest Park by picking up the trail and visiting Loch Venachar and Loch Drunkie.
