About Glen Loin Footpath (Arrochar to Glen Loin)
Glen Loin runs parallel to Loch Lomond, separated by the hill of Cruaich Tarbeirt. There is a five and a half kilometre path between Arrochar and Coiregrogain. Another two kilometres stretches along the private road from Coiregrogain to Inveruglas.
Alternatively the footpath can be incorporated into a circular walk from the head of Loch Long, returning from Coiregrogain along the forest roads to Succoth (11 miles).
Either walk can be extended by a visit to the Loch Sloy Dam, which currently holds the British rainfall record of 9.38 inches in a 24-hour period - this occurred in January 1974.
As with all long walks in the West Highlands, waterproofs should always be carried.
How to get there:
Follow the M8 through Glasgow, onto the A82 along Lochlomondside towards Tarbet. Then follow the A83 to Arrochar Village.
