|Walk:||Mamore Lodge, Loch Eilde Mor, woodland, Grey Mare's Tail Waterfall|
|Start Point:||Kinlochmore, Kearan Road||Grid Reference:||NN 187 621|
|Distance:||7.5 miles||Ascent:||2,000 feet|
|Weather:||Sunny with a cool breeze at times|
|Comments:||The start of the walk was on a very steep indistinct path through tall bracken and over uneven, sometimes boggy, ground. Eventually we met a clear track which took us to Loch Eilde Mor. After backtracking a short distance we followed a clear path down to Grey Mare's Tale waterfall and back to the car.|
The path is hard to follow . . .
so there isn't much time to enjoy the views
Is that a heron peaking out?
Sheila and Marie find an interesting tree . . .
with a face of its own
As the terrain improves we take a look back to Loch Leven
and zoom in on The Pap of Glencoe
A marble seat commemorates one person and a blank plaque waits for another name!
An easy track . . .
takes us towards . . .
Loch Eilde Mor . . .
but we will turn off here . . .
to cross the weir . . .
but on the other side the path is too rough
After backtracking a better path leads steeply down . . .
with Loch Leven in view again
In the woodland we spot one fungus . . .
but as we cross the beck . . .
there are hundreds on the log
The Grey Mare's Tail waterfall can just be seen through the trees
Reaching a closer vantage point . . .
planks allow for a closer look . . .
but the trees still get in the way
Zooming in . . .
and using different settings . . .
allow me to get different affects with the water
Travelling back along the north shore of the loch . . .
with a sunny end to the day
