02 I have pinched this picture from an earlier walk because it
is quite good for showing where to go up the tricky bit past White
Bennan. As you can see you go through trees below it and of course
it is impossible to say just exactly where the paths through the
trees are from this distance, but the red route is approximately
the way I went up. However instead of skirting round the bottom
of White Bennan to get to the west of it, we have in the past gone
up east of it as shown on the blue route to the left of the picture.
It is up to you how adventurous you feel. It is the red route which
takes you over the scene of the battle though.
Before we can ascend either of these routes we have to get round
the head of Loch Trool first.
In the picture below I have zoomed in on White Bennan for a better
look. You will notice that there is a break in the trees running
straight down the hill west of White Bennan. You will see down through
that gap in the trees on page 6
