Hillwalking Falloch Hills - Scottish Walks.

At the start of April 2008 I was wanting a Scottish Walk but one that was not too strenuous and while researching I remembered the Falloch Hills.  This walk was ideal as it is beside Loch Lomond, has breathtaking scenery, a small waterfall and is ideal for a couple of hours relaxing walk.  This walk being on the doorstep of Glasgow, "the waterfall walk" as I shall call it, is just off the A82 near Inverarnan at the west side of Loch Lomond half way up and not too far from Glen Douglas and Ardlui.

On this walk starting from the famous Drovers inn, walk up northwards to the entrance to the Beinglas Campsite which sites below Ben Glas, turning right into the campsite itself,  which may not be a bad base for walking the area, and visit the waterfall which is also visible from the roadside (A82). To get there just pick up the path behind the campsite and Bob's your uncle. the path meets up with the West Highland Way path pretty much at its start, so you can, if you have time, walk north or south on the Glen Falloch valley.

The path up to the waterfall, which is about 200 metres above the ground level, is rather steep and narrow in places with a few rocks. It also runs alongside the falls themselves..so be careful.   There are a few mountains / hills in the surrounding area you may wish to try, namely, Ben Glas, Beinn Chabhair ( a Munro ) and Stob Glas. You can find these on O.S. map Landranger 56.
