Drove up to Lochearnhead from Dumbarton in beautiful autumn sunshine, arrived just after nine and parked in the small carpark opposite episcopal church. Followed the route from there described in Walkhighlands.

Walk up to the glen was fine, the track up through the glen to the bealach made for easy going if a little boring. Once of the track it was much harder but the views from the top were well worth it and I was needing to get out and stretch my legs.

All in all a good day. Never say another walker all day, although there were loads of cars parked at the lay-bys for Ben More and An Caisteal etc.
I could not resist stopping at Loch Lubhair and take a photo of the reflections.ImageIMG_4431 by David Lyall, on Flickr
