Picked up a copy of the up-to-date OS map from the Military Information Centre before setting off from Fenton's Pub.

Following the lane, another walker and myself quickly came to a hikers gate and started the ascent up Camarahill (probably at a pace that was too fast). After Camarahill we continued to follow the military range markers / other signs of the path at a slower pace. The ground was relatively dry after the weekend of sunshine we had.

As we neared the summit, the clouds that had been forming drifted over Lug ruining the view (visibility was fine) - typical of Lug. We didn't stay long at the top - departing back the way we had came.

Descent was brisk and allowed us time to enjoy the silence of the glen and take a few photos.

Weather conditions: Superb.
Time: 2.5 hrs ascent; 1.5 hours descent.

Note: ALL information such as Ascent, Length and Creator time taken etc should be regarded as approximate. The creator's comments are opinions and may not be accurate or still correct.
Your time to complete will depend on your speed plus break time and your mode of transport. For walkers: Naismith's rule, a rough and often inaccurate estimate, suggests a time of 4h 20m + time stopped for breaks
Note: It is up to you to ensure that your route is appropriate for you and your party to follow bearing in mind all factors such as safety, weather conditions, experience and access permission.
