    After sauntering along the tranquil shores of Loch Lomond previously, day four begins to explore a new landscape of rugged mountains and serene glens.

    From Inverarnan, you make a gradual ascent past the beautiful Falls of Falloch; a cascading waterfall on the River Falloch with a plunge pool—if you are feeling brave—that is surrounded by lush woodland and steep rocks.

    Although the trail bypasses Crianlarich, roughly halfway into the route, it is not much of a detour to head into the village if you are in need of some refreshment. There is a shop and a pub.

    Nine-and-a-half miles (15.2 kilometers) into the hike you arrive at the mysterious St. Fillan's Holy Pool. This natural, deep pool at a bend in the River Fillan was used to treat people with ‘mental instability’ up until the 19th century, when the healing properties of the water were ruined when somebody threw a wild bull into pool.

    A short time later, you arrive at The Lochan of the Lost Sword, a small stretch of water that is said to be the resting place for a number of ancient Scottish swords; all cast aside to facilitate an escape from battle.

    You finish for the night in the small village of Tyndrum, which has a range of accommodation. For more information, visit: visitscotland.com/info/towns-villages/tyndrum-p235451.
