Munro Bagging in Arrochar

I must confess that I am not built for climbing mountains, looking at them incredulously yes but much more than that, very definitely not!  My husband on the other hand is part mountain goat and likes nothing more than climbing so he read the National Trust for Scotland Munro Bagging article with interest periodically murmuring “climbed that one”.

Munro bagging for beginners. Arrochar Alps from Balquidder
Route from Balquidder to Arrochar

Balquidder is just 20 minutes away from the Arrochar Alps and some great climbing, we’d recommend the Village Inn for supper on your way home.  For an easier climb, Ben Lomond is 35 miles away (roughly an hour) so a day trip but there’s plenty to do on the way there or back which I’ll cover in another post.
