Three Lochs Way: Garelochhead to Arrochar / Tarbet

The third stage of the route rejoins the Yankee Road above Garelochhead. The first section offers fine views over the loch although the military buildings and pylons do detract from the experience; later the route heads through hidden Gleann Culanach. After Glen Douglas comes the finest section, with stunning views of the Arrochar Alps clustered around the head of Loch Long.


Cycle path then very muddy route back up to the main Three Lochs Way, then tracks for most of the route, with a short section of muddy woodland path. Finally stretch of track can be a little wet underfoot.
