Those picking up their Ordnance Survey maps to plan some hikes in Scotland as lighter days approach may be interested in a climb up a popular Scottish Munro.

Scheihallion has been featured in the latest edition of Trail Magazine, published this week, with a five hour, 9.6 km round route between the top and the start and finish point of the Braes Foss car park.

It noted the 3,553 ft peak is visually striking due to its comparative isolation among the mountains of Perthshire and its conical shape.

This latter aspect saw the mountain chosen by Astronomer Royal Neville Maskelyne in 1774 for an experiment using pendulums where he used the gravitational pull of the mountain to accurately calculate the mass of the Earth.

Visitors to Perthshire have many more Munros to climb, the highest being the 3,982 ft Ben Lawers, while several north Perthshire Munros are now in the Cairngorms National Park after it was expanded last year.
