The path up to Ben Vorlich was quite busy but a lot less people made the journey to Stuc a' Chroin. Very windy up to Ben Vorlich but then it died off. The scramble up to Stuc a' Chroin wasn't that bad and there was only one bit that involved stretching your arm out to get a fingerhold. The scree path back down was a bit steep but fine. 6.5 hours in total.tsharp15/09/2019
Ben Vorlich and Stuc a' Chroin from Loch Earn. Great weather, great company, great walk. AJ,AW.Fred Windsor13/09/2019
A hike up Beinn Each with Iain then a walk along the ridge to Stuc a' Chroin taking in all tops and relaxing in the sun on the summit, enjoying the company of some lovely dogs and people. We then went past the prow and dropped down into Glen Ample north of Coire Chroisg over rough steep ground to the track in Glen Ample before returning to the start at Loch Lubnaig. A great walk on a lovely day, tough going in places with 1443m of ascent over 16.5km.Chris Mac07/09/2019

After re-visit to Vorlich (our wedding day hill for Tony's compleation on 28th Sept 2001). Much better condition with amazing long distance visibility.Lorna S30/03/2019
Drove up the Bracklinn Falls road at Callander and parked up at grid ref 638 100, followed the road up to Braeleny farm and then followed the farm track up to Arivurichardiah cottage.Then headed off in a NNW direction following a faint path climbing steadily to point 730, then from there it was up the shoulder to the cairn at the top. Great views from the top and returned via the same route. 5.5 hrs there and back with 16.5km travelledAnglostark07/02/2019

50 - Climbed on the 1st day of our Honeymoon. Clag, rain and very strong gusts of wind came in about 1/3 of the way up Vorlich, and stayed there until we were well on the way home. Could barely see the scramble, so took path up gully to E. Mrs T seemed happier with that. A good day for no. 50.huwthomas16/10/2018

Approached from the Callander side to miss out the scramble - beautiful walk inhoneydew08/05/2017
Approached from the Arivurichardich side and enjoyed a super walk along a track for a few km, then a gentle walk up the booming ridge to the summit. The SMC Munro guide book mentioned a bridge that had been swept away, making the river difficult to navigate when in spate. Two new bridges have been installed now, so the river crossing isn't an issue now.Louise07/05/2017

I had already climbed Ben Vorlich from Loch Earn, and Ben Each from Loch Lubnaig. I didn't fancy wading the stream on the route from Callander so that left a fourth option, from Edinample Falls at 607199, via Glen Ample and Allt a'Choire Fhuadaraich. Straightforward ascent & return, 14.2km, 986m of ascent.TRG31818/06/2015
