It was a great walk, easy enough up to Green Hill, I carried on off the tracked map on to Ben Tirran (worth it for the views) I then doubled back on to the tracked map which I think should be updated as where this app said there was supposed to be a route back to the main Loch Brandy path, there was not found myself scrambling through bogs and heather and having to jump streams but all good fun

The day started nice but as we gained altitude the trail disappeared then became impassable. Switched sides of the little ravine and at the turnaround point actually fell into a waste deep bog hidden by snow and shrubs. Decided to climb down and as we did an unexpected whiteout hit and our earlier steps had already been covered. Beautiful area and hike! Just not an ideal day. Don’t mind the travel log, had to chase after the dog who broke the leash!
