Ben Venue

On July 3rd Sue Henderson led 16 walkers up Ben Venue in the Trossachs starting a few miles from the Brig of Turk next to Loch Achray. The weather proved to be a mixed bag with some heavy showers and periods of hot sun, requiring constant manipulation of anoraks and sweaters. The path from the car park led up a steep path through the forest and it was not until we reached the open moorland that we stopped for coffee. The walk up to the summit was reasonably straight forward but was surprisingly wet in the peat areas. There are two summits, separated by a valley, both seem to be of equal height. We had our lunch at the top with amazing views over Loch Katrine, before making the long decent through moorland and forest.
