Where - Binnean nan Gobhar, 586m/1,923', Sub-2,000' Marilyn, Map 56, NS 419968
10 February 2010. It was another beautiful day so back out again! Binnean nan Gobhar was not a hill that I had really thought about doing- I had read a few reports about it and they all said that the ground was extremely rough and boggy. But the frost had set in for weeks now so I reckoned that if ever there was a good time to climb the hill then it was now.
This time it was the summit so I got out my flask and chocolate. I needed a rest before tackling the grass and heather again. On the way back, there was a good view of Loch Lomond and the islands.
All in all, this hill was no worse than many I have been on. The frosted ground certainly helped and winter may well be the best season to be here. The walk is about 8 miles with 600m of ascent and took me 4 hours and 15 minutes.
