|Never thought what I'd hoped to be a benign grassy amble of a kilometre from the main road would prove much more of a headache with regular bits of boggy mini valleys that made me refuse to return same way after sunset and chose a three times longer route back via road, but even getting down to that almost got snarled in rhododendron and gorse and more bog.||vegibagger||24/05/2018|
|1st of 5 tumps on a 14 km route from Taynuilt to Connel with my large rucksack, taking track to follow perimeter of golf course then track to Bay then up through trees following a disused track. Came across a series of knolls competing for the summit.
I recorded 82m @ NM99195 32852 and 78m @ NM99199 32904. I Continued by heading for Airds Park West top..||Dazingdale||05/05/2018|
|Train to Taynuilt. Northwards along east side of golf course to shore of Loch Etive, westwards past Airds Bay House to jetty by Clach-ma-nessaig, round east and north sides of Birchwood. Track on OS map difficult to pick up, so up north-westwards on rough grass through fairly open woods to summit. Sunny intervals, brief flurries of snow just before top. Trees limit nearer views, but Stob Dearg (Taynuilt Peak of Cruachan) looked well with snow. Down more south-easterly, picking up track briefly, but it soon fades out. Past Birchwood again to seaward and back to Taynuilt by outward route.||mainnirnamfiadh||27/02/2018|
