About trip

Slightly different linear route from Balloch to Helensburgh that avoids the long stretch of pavement walking along the busy A814 into Helensburgh that features in the standard “Three Lochs Way”. This version ignores the usual descent between Ben Bowie and Gouk Hill and continues over Bennachra Muir until the A818, then follows the minor road leading into Glen Fruin for a mile or so before turning left over the moor towards Helensburgh,reaching the town just short of Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s Hill House.
