Distance: 7 miles (11km)
Ascent: 1038 metres
Start/Finish: Ben Lawers car park, FK21 8TY
A truly outstanding mountain run. From the car park cross the road and follow the signed path north-east through the gated Ben Lawers nature reserve and out onto the mountainside above. Stay R on the main path zig-zagging uphill to the first summit of Beinn Ghlas at 1103 metres. Run down the wonderful, exposed ridgeline and then up the steeper rocky path to the trig point at 1214 metres on the summit of Ben Lawers (3.2 miles/5.2km). Turn around and return along the ridge to Beinn Ghlas, then turn R and descend to the col below Meall Corranaich. Turn L and run on a superb path down the Burn of Edramucky to the outbound trail. Turn R and return through the nature reserve to the start.
