Report on Luss Hills
24 February 2013
Todays Craggys - Michael B, Kenny, Maureen, Kathryn and Irene
We started out from the carpark in Luss and crossed the footbridge over the busy A82. The route begins just after the house and leads up to shoulder of the hill to Creag an t-Seilich. This is unrelenting but the views looking back over Luss and Loch Lomond makes it all worthwhile. This is where our group parted company as Kenny, Kathryn Maureen decided to hurry on ahead to do the longer walk over Doune Hill and Beinn Eich. Irene and Michael just wanted a more leisurely walk enjoying the views. Soon the summit of Beinn Dubh is reached at a cairn.
We continued round the broad horseshoe ridge passing Coire na h-Eanachan to Mid Hill. At Mid Hill Maureen decided against the longer walk as it meant decending down a step grassy slope to the valley below before reascending Doune Hill. The decent down Mid Hill took us to where Glen Mollochan meets Glen Striddle in Glen Luss. We reached the road for a lengthy walk but took time out visiting a small art gallery. We were back at the car long before the others so we had a drink or three in the local hotel waiting for them returning.
Another good day out with Kenny being exhausted from the extended walk and Kathryn already planning the return!
