From Ballagiech Hill. Tremendous wide open view to the North. On to Blackwood Hill.sclater26/07/2020
Came across from Blackwood Hill. Interesting wee hill fort, and good views to Ben Lomond and the Crianlarich Hills. Returned via the windfarm tracks to the visitors centre, then along to the layby opposite Greenfield where we'd parked. (Windfarm car park still closed due to Covid-19, but signs going up that suggest it may open soon)LizH03/06/2020
