Date walked: 29/10/2012

Time taken: 4 hours

Ascent: 461m

I did this walk a couple of months ago now but I thought I,d do a wee report, I can,t remember the exact date but I do remember it was unusualy sunny after the wet summer.After a weeks holiday camping in Aberfoyle and walking the Highland boundary fault I decided to go back up and have a wee jaunt up Ben A,an.I arrived at the bottom of the hill at 7.20 so escaped the worst of the heat and most of the midges as long as I kept moving lol Thouroughly enjoyed it, really good views as it says in the WH description. cheers
