  • BeinnEich from where I got dropped off, still 500m from path start
  • Looking back towards Loch Lomond
  • Doune Hill is the middle summit, BeinnLochain is the left one, no name for the other summit
  • This photo shows the long slow ascent of a’Mhanaich, Cowal hills in background
  • Instead of the usual beam, I just used a Jpole type antenna
  • Doune Hill , note the gully between Doune and BeinnLochain(on left), this was the route I used to get to Glen Mollachan
  • Cloud cover had started to set in towards the end of the activation
  • ‘The Stack of the fairy hill’ with the Cowal hills in the background
  • More ‘Marilyns’ and ‘Munros’ in this view
  • Looking toward some impressive areas of the Highlands
  • Tullich Hill in the foreground
  • Saw this when heading down a gully off Doune Hill towards Glen Mollachan, from any other angle it just looked like a stone
  • This was taken from the bottom of a gully running off Doune Hill I used to descend, boggy ground until you meet an old landrover track which finish off just above my start point
