Lock down had me looking for a local walk, I had always wanted to walk round the hills looking down onto the small reservoir of Finlas water near LUSS. I always find the hills around Luss a bit of a slog but today was even worse than I expected. The views were brilliant but the going was tough. Steep hills covered in tuffet of grass peat hags and a covering of snow covering marsh ground that would give way made the conditions hard.

The hills were clear and views all round were great, from Arran to Stirling, Ben Lui to the Arrochar Alps.
