I fair enjoy a bike a’ hike, more so when I don’t have a lot of time to play with so thought I’d give Creag Gharbh a go after reading some reviews.

So a quick summary of the route. I parked the car just a mile or so outside of Killin, enough room for 5-6 cars I reckon. I cycled the bike pretty much to the loch, with the first 3km cycling through a forest then the views really open up with cracking views over towards the Lawers range.

From the loch it was a walk along the dirt track then a swift left up to the summit. Worth noting that the route from track to summit is pretty much make your own route as no obvious track but very straight forward.

Again the views from the summit are decent, more so to the north and along Loch Tay. I was even treated to a cloud inversion.
