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.

Conic Hill

Out today with Fiona, Joe and an excellent group of kids from Grangemouth High School on Conic Hill above Balmaha. Another beautiful weather day with great views across Loch Lomond to The Luss Hills and Arrochar. Afraid I didn’t take any photos. The hills and crags are currently very dry in the area.

Luss Hills

Mick and I were out in the Luss Hills near Loch Lomond yesterday. We did a pleasant half day circuit taking in Beinn Dubh and Mid Hill.

This avoided the worst of the weather further North and East and gave great views. There was a cold northerly wind, it was below freezing on the summit and we had a few graupel showers during the day as well as patches of sunshine.
