It's been almost six months since my last hillwalk, so I figured it was about time to get back into the swing of things now the weather's picking up again. My last attempt at these hills ended in disappointment when a friend and I had to turn back at the summit of Beinn Eich amidst appalling conditions, and I was determined to return soon and complete the round of the four Grahams around Glen Mollochan. Yesterday I caught the Citylink bus up to Luss and set off at 9.30, with the whole day ahead of me. Unlike last time, conditions got steadily better rather than worse!

Looks like a great day. A good way to get great views of the loch without the crowds of people, like on ben lomond

Great report, thats a tough walk after a 6 month lay off. Been up most of the Luss hills as they are just 20 mins up the road, the descent off Doune hill really is a bugger
