If you walk straight out the back of the cottage, and zig zag your way up the hill behind it take you up Beinn Phlacaig, and from there you can cross to Beinn Mheadhonach, a Graham at 715 metres high. It gives great views back down on to Loch Etive and across the surrounding area. I walked this on a rather wet day, but the views were stunning. I was delighted to bump into a couple of ptarmigan, which I wasn’t expecting, and also found a couple of deer antlers to add to my motley collection. You can drop down further up the loch nearer to Cadderlie, and walk back down the track to the cottage.
These timelapses were from the summit looking north up Loch Etive.
