A day of steady rain that demonstrated well why most people walk south to north. We had the rain and wind in our faces the whole way. It was a case of wet weather gear from the off and for the whole day. The only respite was an hour in the Inveroran Hotel for a beer and some nourishing pea soup.
The first half of the day’s walk was on old drove roads along the edge of Rannoch Moor. The outlook was pretty desolate, especially in the persistent rain, and apparently this section might be the ‘most bleak and wild’ section of the JOGLE walk, along with Liverpool presumably ….
We then dropped into the Bridge of Orchy which comprises a nice bridge, a big hotel and a railway station. From there we were back on the military road for a flat section intertwined with rivers and streams and the Glasgow to Fort William rail line that snakes its way round the contours of the hills and mountains.
We’re now in Tyndrum staying in a B&B with a much-needed drying room so we’ll have dry boots for tomorrow…
