Moderate 6.5 miles / 10.5 km
A walk of about 10.5k and about 350m of ascent. Starting at Drymen, the route goes north to meet the West Highland Way which then leads westwards towards Conic Hill. After Conic Hill there is a steepish descent to Balmaha. The walk is mostly on good tracks and paths although these can be muddy in places and slippery during and after rain. The top of the hill can be avoided by those who wish to stick to the slightly lower path.
The walk may be altered depending on weather conditions
The group will return from Balmaha to Drymen by bus.
