Views Are My New Addiction

Glen Douglas to The Village Inn, Arrocher, (and back)

Spectacular views to the NW of the The Cobbler, Beinn Narnain and the other Arrocher Alps.

Terrain: An undulating, rocky, wet track. After 4km, and level with the lowest in a line of pylons, a stake marks the short, steep, rough, boggy descent to a bridge and under the West Highland Railway line. From there to the Village Inn follow red-ringed stakes marking the path through a Church of Scotland Nature Reserve.

Distance: 9 km, duration 4 hrs(walking), total ascent 505 m to max. ht. 264 m.

Start point: Roadside car parking on the Glen Douglas road, 1.25 km from the junction of A814 (NS 264 996). NB If you want a meal you must book it well in advance.
