Beinn Ghlas

I parked at the Lawers visitor centre, now decaying slowly, and trudged up through an even more depressing 'nature reserve'. Vowing next time I'll start off elsewhere!  read more ...



Ben Ime, 2010-04-13

I chose this for the gentle, although relatively long, walk in. My knees had been hurting somewhat on steep descents so I wanted to take it easy. And the views around Arrochar are just stunning which ever way you look.  read more ...



Cruach Ardrain and Beinn Tulaichean, 2010-04-11

My previous visit to Cruach Ardrain, just a few days before, was a little frustrating as I was hail and gale'd off the western top, not making the summit.  read more ...
