A morning trip to Buachalean,Toward.Taking advantage of the clear dry mornings,an early start so i could get back for work.
Leaving from the FCS car park at Ardyne,turning right once on the first trail and following it as it passes over an overgrown forestry road. Looking back the view over towards Bute already opening up. Continuing straight up the trail ingnoring any others that lead off,soon joins a forestry road. A left turn is required then a right turn leaving the road for an ATV track. The ATV track is defined and soon follows a wall to the base of the hill. A hole in the wall leads to a track that leads straight up the hillside to the summit. The views to the South over Bute and Arran make the trip well worth it.
On the return, a visit to the Chinese Ponds is a must. Situated on the left once descending from the top forestry road.
