Distance is 18km, 600m ascent, but mostly gentle.

Auchnafree Hill at 2588ft (789m), lies to the NE of Glen Turret and is most commonly climbed from the dam at the south end of Loch Turret. The water in this loch is extremely soft due to the local geology and it is piped directly to a local distillery near Crieff for the production of the Glenturret single malt whisky.

Starting out along the east shore of the loch, the ascent is mostly on good tracks with just the final kilometre or so of approach to the summit on moorland. We will descend by a rougher heather path over Tòn Eich and Choinneachain Hill to complete a clockwise circuit.

We can expect some cracking views along this ice-carved glacial trench, with the crags of Càrn Chois and Creag nan Uan across the water and Ben Chonzie in the background.

Total distance: 18.25km / 11.25 miles
Estimated time: 5-6 hours
