Well here is the real report from my second sunny day on the hills before I go back to work next week
This trip came about after I posted my pictures from Ben Venue on FB and my old scout patrol leader from 10years ago messaged me to see when I was heading back out to the hills as he wanted to get back out exploring gods great country that we live in After some messages we came up with a short list of either the cobbler or else beinn an lochain. Seeing I had never climbed the later it seemed the perfect choice
So after parking up I was greated by this
Then off the beaten track we headed up the left hand shoulder from the car park
as you can see from the map below rather than head straight to the top of the shoulder we continued left until we found this great little grass scramble
this took us up to a great little platue that had a great path to the summit
where we got great views and we could see everything from Inverkip power station on the clyde, to mull, jura and even the nevis range
The way down was slightly different for us, we headed down the main path and back along the road to the rest and be thankful so I will just leave use with the rest of the pictures enjoy
