The Map below shows the route to Ben Ledi. The hiking car park is to the left as you cross the bridge to Strathyre Cabins. The hiking trail starts from beside the bridge, up through woodland, all the way to the top.

This is a popular hike so the car park can be full at times. There is a huge lay by about 400 yards north on the A84. The grass verge between the lay by and the bridge is wide and flat, so no problem walking from there to the bridge. There may even be a riverside path between the bridge and lay by. There are signs here stating not to park on the verge, as this is a busy, and fast stretch of road.

Make sure and take an Ordnance Survey Map and Compass on these hikes, and know how to use them, as in cloud, these mountains can be deadly. In Winter, make sure you have Crampons and an Ice Axe, and know how to use them.
