This is 2 weeks after we have been allowed to travel more than 5 miles to walk hills during the Coronavirus pandemic restrictions. Car parks are full and there are lots and lots of frustrated Munro baggers enjoying the hills!
On the way in you go over a railway bridge and turn right over a bog. Except there is a new path from here to the lovely wooden bridge over the Allt Gleann Auchreoch that raises you well above the wet bog. Great! So after the bridge the path now
"becomes" sodden rather than "continues" that way. The magnificent Scots Pines are among the best I've seen making the bogginess more bearable.
It still deserves a 4 on the bog scale as it is pretty horrendous!
Great hills to do particularly if the visibility is good as you can see so far

To avoid the blog I did this in winter conditions when the bog was frozen.
Had to bail on Ben Oss so need to return some day to complete these two.
Good to know that there is now a new bridge.
Thanks for the helpful up-date.
