Conic Hill - Saturday 2nd December 2017

ReportsPosted by Iain Walker Sun, December 03, 2017 13:32:56
Chilly but dry conditions saw a group of 20 meet at the Balmaha carpark, 3 of the group were joining us from outside the club, John, and my personal friends Michael & Rosena , once booted up we headed onto the WHW path towards Loch Lomond, a short detour was added since the last time we did the walk as we headed to pay homage at the statue of the great Tom Weir.

Route in solid red. WHW in diamond red.
World famous hiker Parmjit with Tom looking on approvingly.

After a few photos it was a short walk up to the viewpoint where we had an early coffee break

After coffee we continued on the WHW crossing a field and road ready to pick up the path that would take us up the shoulder then onto Conic hill. We were greated by thankfully "friendly cattle"

Soon we were out of the trees and mud, our target was in the distance,

We also had great views of loch Lomond and the surrounding areas,

Can be a lonely place at times.
On the top we had lunch enjoying the views and sunshine, the route back was across the top onto the WHW path and down the man-made stairs to the car park

The VoT to Iain was given by Alan G.
Many thanks to all, hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.
Also thanks to my friend Michael for the photos (+ Bob C. for three additional images).
