Glen Douglas

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Glen Douglas (Scottish Gaelic: Gleann Dùghlais) is a glen in the southwest Scottish Highlands. It is drained by the Douglas Water, which discharges at the village of Inverbeg at its eastern end into Loch Lomond. The glen is followed by a single-track road which links the A82 road alongside Loch Lomond with the A814 road beside Loch Long. The glen is overlooked to the north by Beinn Bhreac (681 m or 2,234 ft) and Tullich Hill (632 m or 2,073 ft) and to the south by Doune Hill (734 m or 2,408 ft) and a 655 m (2,149 ft) hill known as Coire na h-Eanachan.[1]
