Around Loch Venachar

Route: Loch Venachar circuit, near Brig o'Turk

Date walked: 27/07/2016

Time taken: 6 hours

Distance: 19km

This was an enjoyable day out. We parked at the East end near the dam, there are two small car parks there, so if the first (which only takes 4 cars) is full, there is another just down the road. The big disappointment was that the café at Brig o Turk is closed on Wednesdays but the new visitor centre just along the road was open and was interesting.

We walked in a clockwise direction - might suggest the other way round, as the path on the north side of the Loch does undulate quite a lot, while the path along the south side is level. Made a change from "going up".
