Scottish Group – Loch Lomond

June 20, 2015 @ 9:45 am - 5:00 pm

The plan will be to explore a stretch of the West Highland Way on the east shore of Loch Lomond. We should meet at Tarbet on Loch Lomond at about 9.45am (park near Tarbet pier) and we’ll catch the passenger ferry to Inversnaid. The ferry costs £11.50 return and takes about 30 minutes each way (Click here for details). From Inversnaid we can walk north along a lovely section of the West Highland Way, mostly through oak woodland. I expect we’ll see plenty of the commoner ferns of woods and moorland. Probably no rarities but you never know! We’ll probably aim to return to Tarbet on the 14.15 ferry from Inversnaid, although there’s a later one at 16.30 if anyone’s enjoying it too much. Midges will be about, ticks are common in the woods (as everywhere) and the sun just might appear, so the usual countryside precautions are advisable (including waterproofs and stout footwear). I recommend bringing a packed lunch. There is a hotel at Inversnaid so additional refreshments may be available.

If you need any more info let me know (email below).

I’ve not properly explored that bit of the WHW or caught the ferry before so it’s a voyage of discovery for all of us!

All are welcome!  Hope to see you there.  If you need any more info let me know.  If you do not have your own transport to the start site, get in touch and we will see whether we can arrange a lift.

Please let either Andy or Bridget know if you plan to come.
