A bright sunny spring day. Strong winds after about 500m. I followed the Walkhighlands route. A clear path to summit of the Brack. Very steep and exhilirating. Great views. Pretty lochan. Stunning crags. Route down to bealach was interesting requiring some navigation but pretty straightforward. Some intermittent paths. Some steep bits but no problems. I came to the Cowal Way further west ( I had to climb the fence as I could not see any gate) but that was great as I avoided quite a lot of the bogs. The route up Cnoc Coinnich again was pathless at first but it was easy to find a route up the ridge. Further up there was a grassy path. The summit was wonderful with an amazing 360 degree view! Coming down and back to Ardgarten was less inspiring as there is a long section on tracks and road. However this does make for quicker walking. The path through the forest and the shore walk were pretty. A lovely day.
