Ben Gullipen & Highland Cows

On Sunday we walked up Ben Gullipen near Callendar. This is a nice leg-stretcher of a hill, not that high, but great views.

The Highland Coos were on the slopes, and they looked lovely against the backdrop of sun-flecked hills.

The views from the summit are fantastic, looking down Loch Venachar towards Ben A'an Loch Lomond is just visible. The peak of Ben Lomond could be seen, it's summit getting brushed by the cloud. Ben Ledi is directly opposite Ben Gullipen on the otherside of Loch Venachar. Looking in the opposite direction, I could see the Ochil Hills and the Wallace Monument and Castle in Stirling.

A lot of tree felling has gone on in the area since I was last here a few years ago.
