A Hillwalking Trip to Glen Lyon

At the start of November I climbed a hill in Glen Lyon.

Stopped at Loch Lomond on the way up:





And at the Falls of Dochart at Killin:





On an island at the base of the falls is the ancient burial ground of the clan Macnab, a tranquil, woody place to rest:






Finally arrived in Glen Lyon, parking amongst the trees:



Heading up the track:



Once on the hill, it clouded over:



Ben More from the summit:



View west to remote Loch an Daimh:



View south to snowy Ben Lawers:



and home for tea.

One of them was an olympic rower apparently.

Only 6 ft below ground level you know - remarkable!

I finally saw that show this morning on iPlayer. The island reminds me of the place by Loch Garry where Patrick from GUMC is buried, or the cemetery on Inchailloch on Loch Lomond.
