Beinn Lora

Distance: 6km; Ascent: 370m; with Lynsey & Isabel
With Isabel in the rucksack carrier, we set off walking from Benderloch at around 11am with barely a cloud in the sky.  We ascended steeply up through the forest with good views out over Ardmucknish Bay.  After a break to feed Isabel, we reached the edge of the forest where the views started to open up.  We continued to the summit of Beinn Lora (Marilyn), which we reached at 12:30pm; this was Isabel's first Scottish hill.

The views were excellent, especially towards Mull and Morvern, but as it was quite windy on the summit we didn't stay too long.  We headed back down to the edge of the forest, where we had lunch at a conveniently located picnic bench.  We returned through the forest, taking a slightly different route from the ascent and arrived back at the car at 2pm.  There was a cafe near the carpark, so we headed there to feed Isabel whilst Lynsey & I enjoyed milkshakes and scones.
