Tweed Valley Osprey Project Co-ordinator, Di Bennett, brings us the latest update from the nest....
A short distance from the bustle of Tyndrum is this quiet riverside picnic site. There's plenty of room to stretch your legs in fresh mountain air and dip a toe in the icy waters of the River Lochy.
You'll get a fine view of Ben Lui from here, especially of the steep north west ridge and the mountain's impressive high corries where snow lies from autumn until early summer.
The car park at Glen Lochy is a popular starting point to climb the Munros of Ben Lui and Beinn a'Chleibh. This is a tough route that involves a river crossing and lots of boggy paths, so do prepare accordingly.
The nearest toilets and places to eat are in Dalmally and Tyndrum.
There is no charge to park in this car park. Please park with care and consideration. In particular please park in designated parking areas only and do not block entrances or gates.
The Glen Lochy car park is on the south side of the A85 between Tyndrum and Dalmally.
The nearest postcode is FK20 8SB. This is at Arrivain, about 2 ¾ miles east of the car park.
