East of Strachur through to
the edge of the park before the town of Dunoon lies a beautiful
area comprising Glen Branter and Loch Eck. In this area there
are a arge number of walks and cycle paths as well as picnic and
A walk of particular
interest is the Lauder Walk which is approximately 2 miles long
and takes you to the magnificent Allt Robuic Gorge with its
swirling waters eddies and falls. A great wee walk to stretch
your legs. The walk start at the Forestry car park in Glenbranter. Several circular routes can be found here
Loch Eck is about seven
miles long and is popular spot for wildlife and of course
anglers and picnicers.
Fly fihing is popular and
boat hire is available in the area. The loch has many sandy
beaches and little coves and so anglers and others can while
away the time in a peacefull but rugged environment.
Above Loch Eck winds the
road to Ardentinny on the west shores of Loch Long. This road
provides spectacular views of the area and is well worth the
negotiation of the narrow single track road.
