From Drymen the West Highland Way climbs through a section of forestry before crossing moorland to reach Conic Hill. The dazzlingly beautiful views from here of Loch Lomond and its islands rank among the great moments of any journey along the Way. After the village of Balmaha, the route stays close to Loch Lomond on an undulating but very scenic stretch that leads on to Rowardennan. No wild camping allowed on this section Mar - Oct; there is a basic campsite at Sallochy. Dogs are not allowed in the two enclosed fields on the approach to Conic Hill during the lambing season, even on a lead. The season normally lasts for around three weeks at the end of April and early May. Temporary signage will be in place.
Forest tracks and then a hillpath over Conic Hill, followed by undulating and occasionally rough going closer to Loch Lomond.
Drymen is served by bus; Rowardennan has only a ferry service in the summer months.
