I did this walk on 08th June 2008. It was my 14th walk. I only took up hillwalking at the end of March 2008.
Found this walk a good workout. Beinn Dubh can be tricky when wet due to boggy sections, also steeper sections get the circulation going!. The walk round from the top of Beinn Dubh onto Mid hill can, again, be tricky when wet underfoot, due to peat bogs which have to be crossed with care. The decent of Mid hill can be steep. Alround views are fantastic right from the start of the walk from the car park at Luss. Once down Mid hill a nice walk along the country road back to Luss giving you time to catch your breath again and look back on what has been achieved.
