Norman,

Good photo's! :clap:

Beinn an t-Sidhein is a good wee walk but it was far better before the Forestry Commission cut down all the trees. I see from your photos that the machine track cut into the side of the hill hasn't improved much. A steep path made more difficult trying to keep your feet and avoid all the cut branches.

An excellent view from the top though! :D

I've stayed at Immervoulin (the campsite at the top of Loch Lubnaig) a few times but from your photo's it looks a wee bit damp the now! Dinnae fancy that much! :shock:

Thanks Norman. A nice part of the world!

Thanks,

/Colin. :)
