Another damp start to the day as the path bounced between, over and under rail, road and river. When it’s raining or feet are damp you feel less inclined to divert to points of interest so we strode past St Fillan’s Priory, the Falls of Falloch, and, later on, Rob Roy’s Cave.
We passed a weather station which helpfully told us we were at one of the wettest point in the UK – it rains 280 days a year. As Malcolm said “If you can’t see the hills, it’s raining. If you can see the hills, it’s about to rain.”
We were pleased to reach the start of Loch Lomond – it marks the start of the run-in into Glasgow. We have another day of the loch tomorrow.
You would imagine the last section along the shore of Loch Lomond would be easy walking but in fact it involved a good deal of clambering over rocks and trees roots. It helped to have long legs and poles.
Better still we were suddenly blessed with lovely sunshine which helped us dry out and put a spring in our step – or clamber. The scenery was beautiful; banks of fresh bluebells and bracken along gently lapping water.
All that lapping gave us a serious thirst ….
It was a long day but I managed to find some time to split some logs for Agnetha. Like Fergus, she wants more photos!
This one is especially for Sue and Pete:
