In past days, old military roads went north from Amulree to Aberfeldy, south to Crieff; others went by Strathbraan to Dunkeld, and to Kenmore by Glen Quaich.
We parked opposite the now abandoned hotel - William Wordsworth and his sister Dorothy stopped here on Friday 9 September 1803 during their tour in Scotland, as Dorothy recorded in her journal: "We halted at a lonely inn at the foot of a steep barren moor, which we had to cross".
We on the other hand prepared to brave the traffic on the kilometre walk along the A822 to Girron, not realising that we could have parked at the start of the walk.

We were buffetted along this pleasant heathery ridge by a strong, cold westerly so taking photographs with the iPhone was no easy matter.

I'm sure we will return for this Top and maybe walk the track down to the River Almond at a later date.

It was a peaceful place and we would have spent longer there were it not for my mishap.
