Last Tuesday Alan and I did Beinn Eich - Cruach an t-Sidhein and Doune hill from Glen Luss. Room to the park the car was found by the wee bridge at the end of the road - a signpost pointed an uphill route thro the fields to our first top. Sunshine and a stiff breeze kept us moving - topping out on the last hill on the 4 hour mark. The going was tough in bits echoed by the drop into glen mollochan until we hit the path that led to the road. seen enroute - awesome views, birds and sheep - one guy in trainers and a skittish peacock butterfly that defied attempts to photo it . A welcome beer in a luss inn ended a great day out.
