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.

Maybe nearby Ben Venue would have been more of a challenge,

Nice to go beyond the Ben to strike out on your own.

En route to the loch we came across this primeval scene, is that a head at the foot of the tree ?

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.
