A Scottish Journey


30 May 2017

11 miler to Tyndrum, heavy downpour in the forest and arrived to mostly sunny evening so dried out all stuff, made great progress and arrived by 3pm. Ping and fish and chips in Tyndrum Inn and made a few WHW friends. Big fat tomorrow across to Nridge of Orchy and over Rannoch Zmoor, forecast good...thankfully πŸΎπŸ‘£πŸΎπŸ‘£

A long yomp down the east shore of Loch Lomond to Bein Glas and a hearty dinner, dry sunny spells with wet showers, very Scottish. Had s home made hot chocolate in Doune Byrd Bothy and kept awake most of the night by snoring and happy guy rope trippers!

Only a short but very wet 4 miles this afternoon Marin stopped and pitched camp in Garadhban Forest wild campsite with a camp fire. Had a wee stroll after Orzo pasta bolognese to see the most clinging to Conic Hill. In bed by 8.30pm after s long day with early start due to blocked train line at Preston. Full compensation promised from Cal Sleeper! 😊... night night ... cuckoo cuckooing madly!! Rufus sound asleep by my side.. 🐢🐾...
Rufus waiting for more tickles on the coach approaching Glasgow. At the back (next to the loo! ... not great 😳). James Norton lookalike tennis coach from Worthing chatting about he and his friends hol near Mallaig and "Jock" from Glasgie on way back from Chelsea flower show with wife. Now in traffic jam, heyho... 😚
Train stopped at Preston at 4.30 due to problem on line ahead , slept til 7am and had to get off for replacement coach to Glasgow which should arrive midday. Will the get train to Drymen (13 miles into walk) and walk for a couple of hours to first camp (storms are further north now).. dry high cloud at the moment.
