Beinn a' Choin, near Inversnaid
Beinn a' Choin is a rugged and wild tract of moorland and rocky hills lying to the north of Ben Lomond. The obvious horseshoe route to the summit around Coire Arklet has no parking area, so this route instead climbs the mountain from the RPSB car park at Garrison Farm.
Very boggy, rough and largely pathless going on the hill.
No public transport.
