About the walk:


This is an underrated walk from Glen Brerachan near Pitlochry over Blath Bhalg (641m) (pr. blar valack).  This is a Graham (Scottish hills between 2,000 and 2,500ft high) through Glen Derby where the remains of ancient steadings and a ferm-toun will be visited, and ending at Kirkmichael Log Cabin Hotel for refreshments.  If the weather is clear Ben Nevis can be seen from the summit.
