Take the High Road
Most people will know the song and could guess from the title that we have been to the bonnie, bonnie banks of Loch Lomond. Devotees of the long-defunct STV soap will be able to pinpoint our visit to Luss, though in this case it was just to use its very spacious (and expensive) car park. We were setting out to walk the Glen Striddle Horseshoe. Loch Lomond looks very pretty on the way up (see above). However, the best views are those of Ben Lomond and the Arrochar Alps from the top of Beinn Dubh. This is a Graham summit, Grahams being hills between 2000 and 2499 feet, and the whole circuit is about 7 miles. We had a good day for it (Sunday, 15th April), as the pictures below show.
