The path is clear and the walking conditions good, steps for steep climb up and out of the forest then worn path to top of East Lomond. Clear view of path all the way to West Lomond. Once down to the car park, it seems a long slog to get to West Lomond across the well metalled track. Sheep with lambs everywhere. Great views up top. Maspie Glen is a must do part of the walk. The waterfall is small but beautifully formed, so don't miss it. I did and had to walk back up to view it.

Agree about Maspie Den. This is one of our closest hills and yet it was years before we discovered it. The waterfall is good in winter too. It was equally long before we discovered you can climb the West Lomond from Gateside via the Bunnetstane..
