Another double done, this was good for the views down to Loch Awe and the Taynuilt/Oban area. The path was easy enough to follow even though there was a lot of water which made the walking quite wet underfoot at times. We walked up the route as described on walkhighlands the only note I'd make about the instructions is don't be tempted to leave the track at the Cairn on the right as you walk along the track, stay on the track and continue over the burn for about 600 yards till you come to the fork where you turn right then the path up the grass slope is easily noticeable. Another good one for the birds, we saw Ravens,Buzzard, 3 Ptarmigan and what I think was a Peregrine above Beinn Eunaich, we only got a fleeting glance as it moved over us, but true to form it was flying into the sun so we mostly saw it in silhouette.
