A trek up Ben A'n then extended hill walk west to take in part of Loch Katrine.
Jesper and I enjoyed a very pleasant climb and walk with stunning views of the Trossachs.
Nice to go beyond the Ben to strike out on your own.
After the peace and quiet of the trek a big shock when reaching the lochside peninsular at Ruinn Dubh Aird, people in a golf buggy dressed in Sunday best taking in the view, compensated by passing a 'very' elderly couple suitably dressed in good hill walking gear assisting each other to the lochside, I bet they have clocked up some miles and had some experiences in their time.
