Overview

A circular walk from Rowardennan on the West Highland Way. 

The low level WHW track along the loch side is taken to just after  Rowchoish Bothy.  This track is quite rugged in places with rocks and tree roots to navigate but it has great views across Loch Lomond looking towards Ben Narnain and The Cobbler.  The ground is quite firm underfoot and there are only a few short sections with some mud.

Soon after the bothy, the lower WHW track rejoins the higher level track which we then follow back to Rowardennan.

 

This is at the Easier end of Moderate.  Local Grade Easy B
