Up staying at Dalavich and decided to try this walk just to stretch the legs and get some fresh air. Had had a can about for climbs round about but didn't have enough time to explore Cruachan (hopefully next spring/summer though) so went for this slightly easier walk instead :)

Set off around 12 o'clock, very easy walk though the woods, and very well signposted. Ground was fine even in current, wet conditions, couple of small boggy bits but nothing much. two or three very short ascents but hardly even enough to get the lungs pumping.

A lot of trees throughout the walk, being a woodland walk right enough, but some great views of Cruachan (I think!) and it's buddies;

Took about 50 minutes for the walk, with a couple of short stops to take photos, but was walking fairly briskly. Pleasant walk on the whole, but I do prefer something a wee bit more challenging.
