Designated parking space just SE of Tullich Farm in Glen Douglas. Walked up road, through gate at sign for Tullich Hill. NW up Tullich Hill - negotiated deer fence. Then NE down to bealach intending to go for Ben Reoch. Put left foot and ankle in watery bog, boot/foot soaking so decided against Ben Reoch and headed east up to bealach NW of Beinn Bhreac. Then SE to Beinn Bhreac. SW back down to car skirting round the trees.

Brilliant photos Rockhopper, I feel like I was up there with you! :D

It's a very similar view to the one from Beinn Dubh and Mid Hill but looks like an even better angle of the Arrochar Alps, as shown so well in many of your images, top stuff! :clap:

These are fabulous hills, especially on a good day 8)

I very clearly remember that deer fence. The gradient of the hill makes it feel twice as high as it is. A bit of an issue when you're vertically challenged like me :lol:

Shame you missed out Ben Reoch, I reckoned it was actually an even better viewpoint, despite not being a tickable summit :wink:

Good viewpoint and some great zoom shots. Cold wet foot not good.

I love these little hills, and they're particularly good on snowy days. Great for keeping legs ticking over in winter. Lovely set of photos - you had a really good day for views. I particularly like the one of the shafts of light through the clouds. :)

Ben Reoch is a great viwpoint, as Jaxter says, and it's worth adding it. I did it with Breac and did Tulloch on it's own on a 'short daylight' day. The view of the snow clad Arrochar hills as they suddenly appeared at the little cairn was really stunning. Spent ages wandering around and had a bumslide down Tulloch back to the farm :D

cheers all :D sounds like I'll need to head up Ben Reoch when next up there :roll:

The Rodmiester - certainly could have been a little ice as other bogs/water pools were iced up
