Winter isn't over so the tent is staying in the cupboard for now, but I've managed to get out for a few day hikes in the last few weeks.
This week I went to Loch Ard in the Trossachs, scouting out wild camping spots and, more importantly getting back to nature.


There wasn't much nature about though. A lone crow, a few finches and a few ducks and swans were all I saw. Spring is coming soon though now and the forests,lochs and glens will come alive again.


Towering over the Loch Ard forest was the shapely eastern face of Ben Lomond, still resplendent in winter white.
It was good to get out of the city for a while. Getting out into the woods makes me feel human again.
Peace.
