Ran fast down the Bheinn Ghlas windfarm track -perfectly angled for a fast run which grabbed me just enough time for a pre-dark bag at 5pm for hill 8/8. Nice deciduous woodland above Angus Garden Centre. The garden is a living memorial to Angus Macdonald, who was killed at the young age of 26 by Greek-Cypriot terrorist Nikos Sampson whilst working in Cyprus as a journalist in 1956 (he was, at the time, prospective parliamentary candidate for Argyll & Bute). Created a year later by Angusí mother, Betty Macdonald, this nine-acre woodland garden was intended as a physical space symbolic of forgiveness and reconciliation. Famous for its extensive collection of spring-flowering rhododendrons and azaleasChris Pearson09/11/2023
After a long journey from Preston to Glasgow i then took the train to Taynuilt, then the 415 bus to Kilchrenan to do an out and back to the Taychreggan hotel to drop off my large rucksack in readiness for tomorrow then I caught the return bus back to Taynuilt for an out and back using Angus's garden car park (after a 10 minute scoot through the gardens to appreciate the flowering Rhodos) to bypass deer fence and climb through foliage to heathery knoll then a bit further to true top, an open area of bracken with nearby trees. Descent to road over deer fence after tracking to a corner support then back to Taynuilt for pick-up by my Airbnb host at the War Memorial.Dazingdale04/05/2019
After Cruach Airdeny. Initially considered approach from south-west, but put off by high fence and high vegetation. Went round past Angusís Garden car park to cattle grid, then up left towards top. Probably very pleasant in winter and spring, but summer-height bracken covering rough ground and forestry debris made progress extremely slow. A machete would have been useful. Back to Barguillean and down Glen Lonan road to Taynuilt for train to Oban.mainnirnamfiadh17/07/2018
