A Corbett for lunch

Taking advantage of a gap in the summery weather we popped over to Callander for a walk up Ben Ledi. I have driven (or been driven) past this lovely hill above Loch Lubnaig for nigh on 55 years and never walked up it.

An hour or so of steepish steady plodding in sultry conditions, alleviated by a gentle breeze on the upper ridge, saw great views over the highlands and even as far as Arran. The hills over to Glencoe and Cruachan still have spots of snow visible but we didn’t hang around too long for midges were making themselves felt even on the summit. Quite a few folk out and about even though it was midweek. Holiday time I presume. On the way down we came across the intake for the Callander Community Hydro Scheme.
