tinkers loch

Date walked: 05/05/2014

Time taken: 3.5 hours

Distance: 8km

Ascent: 440m

Have not been out in a while so just went out with the dog for a wee warm up. Nothing too serious, or so I though. Headed up to a little hill loch called "tinkers loch". It sits north of loch chon and south of loch katerine. It is a walk of about 2 miles and 1 mile around the loch, the loch is about 440m above sea level and has a very steep track up to it, about 3/4 up the hill it isn't just as steep then it get very boggy. Once you get to the loch it is quite heavy going thrashing through the heather. Its a great wee walk if you have a few hours spare and there is fish in the loch as well if anyone fishes

the main track was blocked with fallen down tree, I had to walk into the pine forest to get by. Inside the forest I came across this old stone shelter or something
