Been waiting for a chance to do this walk for a while as I find decent sized loops hard to come by.
weather forecast said rain all day but not heavy so it seemed like a good idea. I also decided to alter the route a little as I wanted to take in loch drunkie as well.
the going was a bit rough between bealach nan carn and loch drunkie but I soldiered on and got there in the end. made my way round to Glen Finglas visitors centre and as it was closed made use of there doorway as a nice shelter for lunch. the climb out of Glen Finglas is a bit steep but worth it as the views along that stretch of the great trossachs path are fantastic. Took a wee climb up to the iron age fort because it was there and got some nice views before heading back to the car. I really enjoyed this walk and would recommend it in any weather. I will probably be back in the summer to try and see it on a nice clear day. I anyone has any recommendations for any other "loops" of a similar size and nature I would love to hear about them, thanks.
