There is a parking area just before Invergroin Cottage and from here you head towards the cottage, go over the bridge then turn right through the gate and a faint path leads to the summit of Tullich Hill. From Tullich i headed north east, making my way down the crags then crossing the Alt Streang before following the old fence posts to Ben Reoch. From Ben Reoch i headed south east over the plateaux then up the ridge to Beinn Bhreac and from here south south east to the edge of the forest and back to the start. Some walk reports mention the bogfest on this walk and i can see that it could be boggy in wet weather, however i was lucky that it was a fine day and the bog was not too bad. There were a couple of showers, with a touch of snow at one point but generally it was a good day. The views from all three summits are stunning, again i was lucky with the weather. During the walk i could see The Cobbler and Munros shrouded in rain at times and luckily the worst of it missed this area, which was of good for me but not so good if you were on the Arrochar Alps. The walk took me 4 hours in total with a twenty minute or so stop for lunch.

Great effort with your 50 Grahams! Well done Johnny :D

Very interesting triangular route. I did some of my earliest walking just south of there in Glen Fruin on my Grampa McKinlay's hill farm during the 70's :lol:
