Hillwalking Arrochar - Scottish Walks.

Here I spent a long weekend on a Scottish campsite just outside the village of Arrochar. Arrochar is located not to far from Loch Lomond, Scotlands biggest Loch. The Arrochar walks included Glen Shira and Glen Kinglas, both off the A83 past the Rest And Be Thankful.  A beautiful setting in any weather condition.

Both walks have man made paths and are both 4 hours return, notable mountains include Beinn an Lochain (901) and Beinn Ime (1011). Great scenery and easy walking.

 About 1 mile past the campsite is a Scottish Tourist Centre which is also the start of a man made, loop the loop walk of 2 to 3 hours which at its highest point (with picnic area) gives an excellent view of Loch Long looking down to Arrochar.

For the more energetic of you there is always the famous Cobbler (Ben Arthur ) 884 ml, which is a great favourite of Scottish hill climbers.
