Hillwalking Glen Finlas - Scottish Walks.

After many years of walking the hills of Scotland, I found a wonderful walk on my very own doorstep just around 15 miles from my humble abode. The walk was a glen at the southern end of Loch Lomond on the western side just before Glen Luss. The Finlas Water sortie is a round trip of only four or five miles leading up to the dam of the same name.

Travelling on the A82 and about a half mile after the cut off for the B832 is a secondary road taking you to Antron farm and through Glen Fruin. Immediately on this road stop the car and disembark. A small single track road signposted for Finlas Water is the starting point.

The journey is a little steep for the first mile and then levels out to an acceptable level, with great views of Loch Lomond and its islands. Shantron and Creachan hills provide the views as the walk continues to the dam itself for a well deserved rest before returning to your car. The parking area can only accommodate two cars.

Don't miss it.
