Rugged Run – Earls Seat From Clachan Of Campsie (Iain)

There is more than one way up to Earls Seat. It is commonly tackled from Dumgoyne but I wanted to challenge myself and see if it was possible to get to Earls Seat by following the Finglen River from Clachan of Campsie. It was easier than I thought but I only recommend it if you are comfortable navigating with no paths around.

Check out the video to see the route.

An interesting route but probably not a good way for most people as its pretty rough.
