Benvane Ben A’an

Some numpty had managed to take up most of the parking space for Benvane by awkwardly parking their car and muggins here got stuck in a lovely snow/ice/bog combination trying to squeeze into what space was left. Finally managed to acquire traction and claw my way back onto the road after an hour and a half with the help of a stack of logs I had in the boot. I knew they would come in handy one day.

I was less enthusiastic about the whole enterprise by that point so I did Ben A’an instead and then bought an assortment of tasty beers at the Lade Inn beer shop. Steak pie for tea. On the whole, not a bad result.

Posted in photos.

    Seems to me you’re planning your hillwalking around yon beer shop these days.

    I’d rather not but I feel obliged to. Got to put something into the local economy, you know.

    I can’t seem to get past the tablet shop in Callander without stopping when I’m out that way :o(

    The photos are superb and the last one looking down to the loch is magic. A good result indeed.

    Aye, the views from Ben A’an are totally out of proportion to the minimal effort required to get up it.

    I highly recommend it.

    What todays intrepid hillwalker needs is an Audi to prevent those embarrassing stuck in the snow moments!
