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.
