For a stop on the way, the Cafe at Inveruglass, has expensive coffee but we get a take-away, sit on a bench surrounded by blaeberry and heather and drink in the divine views.
This cafe is the other side of the road from Loch Sloy power station and you can see the giant pipes descending the slopes of Ben Ime opposite. There is a large car park where coach parties take the ferry across Loch Lomond to Inversnaid.
It might be the most expensive coffee I’ve had, but if you walk onto the rise behind the cafe, you reach the most exquisite rocky hillock with scots pine, birch, heather and blaeberry. Sit on a bench or clamber down to the shore and the views south down Loch Lomond are amazing.
