Went up there yesterday. Great weather and some wee walk.
Here's some pics. Photography tip: Always check your ISO settings. 400 for every shot. D'oh!
Meant to add £20 return on the bus from Buchanan St to Loch Sloy. What's that all about? No wonder people don't use public transport. Only £10.90 return from Kelvinbridge to Tarbet though. That's a brilliant scam.
Easy walk on the way in from the power station.
View towards Loch Lomond
The Sound Of Music
Loch Sloy Dam

Haven't been using my main computer lately (faulty PSU) so using laptop and I can't help thinking that all my shots are looking a little soft. I'm becoming obsessed with it.
Could be worse. Might be a -40 windchill outside

Easy road in from the power station then it's pretty much a relentless ascent. On the way down my thigh just died on me. No idea what happened but it didn't work the way is was supposed to so the descent took ages as I hobbled and slipped over every rock in front of me.
Amazing views all round and I'd love to do it again sometime.

As lowlight says, once you go over the bridge the path is about 300 yards or so ahead on the right. The start of it isn't that clear but when you reach a very small bridge thats where most people cut off the road.
It's a steep wee hill although I did enjoy it. I agree with lowlight about the false summits!

We even had the added bonus of a wee bit of snow.

I can beat that - recently spent a week post processing to fix noise only to discover I had somehow set the camera at iso 3200.
Ben Vane - high on the must do list for July.
