The striding arches are nice, the most interesting things in the area.Alan Moore15/04/2014
Circuit from copse at 715950. Couldn't find marked path so headed up various rides from Benbuie. Easy enough to walk inside forest as trees are mature and well spaced. Went back SE to visit first arch, then followed ridge along till 2nd arch on Colt Hill, then round to 3rd arch on Benbrack. Then followed firebreak and wall down Little Dibdin Crags to windfarm roads which were followed to near Wether Hill. By now it was misty, windy and wet so ideal for visiting windfarm . After Wether Hill SE traverse to bridge near Corriedow and back up road to car. 6 hours and often on 4wd track. Arches are excellent ideaThearlaichdubh22/02/2014
