Loch Goil

With very strong easterly winds forecast at height today B and I headed west of Lochgoilhead to take in some lower hills. We visited Stob na Boine Druim-fhinn, Beinn Tharsuinn, Beinn an Lochain and it’s East Top. This avoided the worst of the precipitation and we only had a couple of showers although it was pretty windy even on these 2000ft hills.

There was a covering of snow above about 800m visible on the hills further east and north; as we drove back through Arrochar Beinn Ime and The Cobbler had a good dusting high up.

Luss Hills

I was out today in the Luss Hills near Loch Lomond with B, Pamela and Mick. We made a circuit up Beinn Eich via it’s east ridge then over Beinn Lochain, Doune Hill and it’s East Top before descending south to Glen Mollochan.

It was raining on a strong NW wind in the morning, but dried up in the afternoon. The going was very wet underfoot descending Glen Mollochan to return to Glenn Luss.
