Meet at The Square in Drymen and there is parking in either the Drymen Car Park or on the street parking next to the the square. It’s right outside the Winnock hotel, and we will be able to use the toilets!! This is a special walk of mine, as I walked this on my 25th Birthday with my parents and was surprised 😮 by three very wonderful close friends! So if you want to join me for a good stretch of the legs then please do!! Through forestry paths and scenery worth stopping for you come out to a stoned path on the route up to the slightly steep Conic Hill. For those who are adventurous enough then I urge people to climb Conic Hill. If not stick to the path to take in some spectacular views of Loch Lomond and beyond! Before we head down to Balmaha on a good laid out path before hitting the Conic Hill Car Park. I will be going into St Mocha Cafe for a refreshment before heading along the road back to Drymen!
This walk is for people who would like to try a Munro or have done a couple before that would like to get another under their belt. Beinn Dorain Bridge of Orchy Beinn Dorain is one of the most instantly recognisable Munros in the southern Highlands, a huge conical peak that dominates the A82 when driving north from Tyndrum. Its ascent can easily be combined with neighbouring Beinn an Dothaidh which has a fine outlook over Rannoch Moor. People will have the option to do Beinn Dothaidh on the day. Grade- Moderate www.meetup.com/scottishhillwalkers/pages/Walking_Grades Pace- Easy (This means a chilled out pace, and we’ll walk at the pace of the slowest walker) TERRAIN Eroded paths for much of the route, some wet sections.
