The quest to conquer further trig points continues. A new area to explore within Strachur.
4.5 miles, 2 hours.
Creagan an Eich, whilst not a giant at 326mts gives fantastic views over Strachur and Loch Fyne. Another small hill with big views.
Parking available at Clachan Beag housing and crossing the road taking Mill Road next to Fergusons yard starts the journey.
A deer gate further ahead with a kissing gate provides further access and the use of the road to the communication masts.
A warning sign highlights the use of high volocity rifles!!!
Once the masts have been reached the remaining 0.7 miles are on open hillside. An ATV track gives enough guidance to the summit marked by a trig point via another deer gate. The views get better with elevation.
Once through the gate (approx. 2/3 of the open hill section) the ATV track is still evident and pretty much leads to the trig point.

On a separate note, a walk through the woods to be explored and an ideal bothy project!
