Solo with Lily and Holly. Steep grassy, there and back, walk from Arrivain radio mast in Glen Lochy. Cool, overcast, dry, blustery day. 3 hours.alexmaclennan17/12/2016
Snuck up this one craftily before a storm blew in. Along the West Highland Way from Tyndrum, up the Cononish track, past the farm (gruesome green sheds), and then onto an ATV track after the gate, which I promptly lost in favour of steep deep grass and rushes (doh). A great relief to find the track higher up, which speeds the way to the plateau above the Eas Anie. The final climb is also steep. The summit area is really good, with a craggy corrie below and fabulous views, despite cloud on the bigger mountains. I followed a stream down, easy grass, then onto the track. It's only on the way down that you realise how steep the track is. It's a miracle (or the insanity?) of modern technology that you can drive vehicles up ground as daft as this. Back to Tyndrum Lower on the forestry track. Stalking notes: Glen Falloch stalker says that this estate only stalks at weekends, using contract stalkersGill23/09/2016

1 hr walk along track from railway station to get to bottom of the hill. Excellent view of waterfall. Just past the second stile there is a track up the hill for about half an hr. It stops and it is over to you to pick your way. Views to Ben ledi would have been good if it hadn't been such a wet and miserable day. Done alone.tallblond29/08/2015
