Sunset on Lochgoin

Route: Lochgoin Circuit, Whitelee Windfarm

Date walked: 02/01/2021

Time taken: 1.5 hours

Distance: 6km

Ascent: 102m

On a bit of a whim I decided to head back up to Whitelee Windfarm for another walk - although this time starting later in the day to capture sunset. The plan was to do the Lochgoin Circuit, starting and finishing at the windfarm visitor centre. This is a relatively simple walk, being a 13.5km loop with very little ascent. However, I got a bit preoccupied with the sunset and things didn't quite go according to plan! Nevertheless, it was a great wee walk in perfect winter conditions.
