1st – 8th February 2014

We arrived to a warm welcome and a nicely presented cottage (Lodge).  The Cottage came with everything we wanted and the whirlpool bath was a nice additional after a long cold walk!

The Sea Life Centre was good in Balloch.  A walk up to the Cobbler from Arrochar was excellent but the snow became quite deep at the very top, views were incredible.  Almost lost the Hire Car though as Loch Long flooded into the car park!

Tried to walk to Ben Vorlich next day but the path was hard to find from the dam at Loch Sloy.  However, the dam and the valley is impressive .

Loch Fyne is a good place to eat too, only place that seemed to serve a selection of seafood.

The sleeper train is a great way to travel too!
