The fifth section of the Loch Lomond and Cowal Way includes the highest climb on the route, crossing the empty bealach between Lochgoilhead and Ardgarten. There are good views and something of a wilderness feel on the highest section.
Forest tracks for much of the way, with a steep ascent on a rough path in the forest. The highest section of the route has only a very faint and boggy path - wooden posts mark part of this section.
