One comment on “Loch Eck Loop

  1. Aye Fraser three of us done this anticlock wise last year. Brilliant walk company was two Johns who are 70 and 76 year old guys the latter just having a hip replacement but both members of the long distance walking and orienteering club and work locally with the duke of Edinburgh awards scheme. They say something about walking anti clock mmmmm wonder what they mean. The day was fair with rain heavy coming ownto to roadside and along to Glen Branter road entrance, which in turn was a good break to take relief and some sanies in the bus shelter. Drizzle for a mile from shelter then dry and warm home stretch. This shelter we shared with a mountain biker who was drenched and rather cold. The roof of my two little toes came off a mile to the water works ooouch! Possible with the wet and warm changes in my foot.
    The walk up from Benmore Gardens is a steep start but once your up its a very good and easy walk. other energy strikes are the mile before and up to the radio mast then all downhill there on after. The west side is a gentle ramble, and as you say as you say great views.

    Sunday did from Loch Fyne An Socach view over Glendaruel to Kyles of Bute and Holy Isle nice wee stroll for a Sunday followed by some Fyne Ales. View of the Minard Isles and Minard Castle were also gained

    Wednesday did the half of the Coffin Trail up and along Glen Kin just below Bishops Seat and doubled back to the car. This is a good walk right over to the church at Loch Striven.
