North Loch Lomond (Inversnaid-Inverarnan)


** Update 10th October – Due to the recent heavy rain, we have had reports that this section which may become impassable (if bad weather conditions continue) because of high stream levels. Streams rise fast and can subside fast too. The area is described as Boundary Bridge over the Allt Rostan about 3.5 to 4 km (about 2.5 miles) north of Inversnaid.**
