Great walk around Rowardennan + Ben Lomond

Rowardennan area photos

Here are some great photos that my friend Neil took when we drive up the east side of Loch Lomond to a place called Rowardennan.

These photos were taken using a Canon EOS 5D Mark II camera. Which costs more than good second hard priced car!!

Cycling from Killearn to Rowardennan

Just to think I was sure, I was not going to get any more cycling in during my time in Scotland. Well I was wrong. I found the time to cycle from Killearn to Rowardennan. Bring my total number of miles while up in Scotland to 144.21. So not to bad for just four cycles. It’s also only the second time, I have ever done this cycle. Vlog to follow soon..

I will now leave you with the route map, elevation graph, route statistics and photos.

Monday – 11th October 2010

Today I went a great cycle from Killearn to Rowardennan on the east side in Loch Lomond. I may have lived in Killearn well over half my life, but it’s the first time I have ever cycled to Rowardennan, most times, I just cycled to Balmaha and turned back, mainly since just after Balmaha, they’re is a 15% hill to get up. Also the road just ends at Rowardennan. So it’s like cycling up a road to no where. Just got a car park for the people walking up Ben Lomond and hotel.
