Drove up track a couple of kilometres then out and up Bennan Hill, followed by Curlywee, Scars of Mildown, Bennanbrook, Lamachan Hill and Larg Hill then down to firebreak and relatively short walk to car.SS06/07/2019
Beginning from Loch Trool I followed the forest track and the turned off and made my way up to the summit of Curleywee (674m). From there I dropped down to Bennan Hill and White Bennan Hill before then climbing back up to Bennanbrack and onto the highest point of the day at Lamachan (716m). I then dropped down to Mulldonanch and finished with a difficult descent through tussocks and felled forest to Loch Trool. Including a walk around the Loch at the end I clocked up about 15 miles on a dry sunny day.meltdiceburg22/04/2019
