TGOC16 – Days 7 & 8 – Struan, Killiecrankie and Ben Vrackie

The walk along Loch Errochty and the minor roads to Struan was pleasant and after 3 nights wild camping it was good to have a little luxury (like hot water and crockery) in the Inn.

I could have followed a minor road all the way to Killiecrankie but did a 5km x-country stretch with a bit of road walking at either end instead.

The route out of Killiecrankie to Ben Vrackie is well signposted so the navigation was easy. Of course, I’d never intended to go up the hill – I just wanted to camp at the bottom.

I’ve gone on about 1km to try to find a midge-free dry bit of ground. I’m camped between two raging torrents; so fingers crossed for no rain overnight!
