hi everyone got off to a bit of a late start as we were looking for hills to walk further west as we spent to long on this we decided on staying closer to home and walking ben ledi . set off from stank road near the banks of loch luibnaig. the start of the walk is clearly marked with blue way markers up through the forrest passing a lovely water fall on the right jess my black lab was keen to get in it :D once u leave the forest there a clear path following the burn and then onto the summit where we had some great views in all directions it was a exellent view point that day and another amazing day in the hills heres some more pics :D met a really nice couple who fed jess some biscuits surprised she didnt follow them home :clap: returned back down same route pictures have uploaded back to front i'll get the hang of this yet haha :lol:
