Had a spare hour, so decided to go up a small hill locally known as the camels hump dressed in snow:) Short walk with nice views of the holy loch, clyde and nearby hills especially considering the height.

I parked at the loskin carpark to save a little time.. (enough to build a small snowman)

Dug out rock, used to form the new path that the forestry have made linking the road to Bishop's Glen.

I'm sure there was a path there..

A fun and easy walk suiteable for kids, its part of the ardanadam heritage trail. Theres tons of local small walks in my town and a lot of them have a lot of historic value :)

Is your snowman conducting an orchestra? It looks like there is a conductor's baton in its hand.

Wow! I never thought I'd see a report for the Camels Hump or Cammy's Hump as we use to call it. This was the first hill of anykind I climbed that had a cairn at the top. I grew up in Dunoon and climbed this when I was in P7 so around 30 years ago! Nice to see the pics too. The views are still stunning!
