Another great weather day for walking. The plan was 15 miles but it was such a lovely afternoon I did an extra 3; so 18 for the day, from Beauly to the far side of Drumnadrochit (what a great name). The last hour was down the Great Glen Way which will be my walking route for the next few days. So nice to get away from traffic for a while. Plenty of hills today so I really needed the rest at lunchtime.
Being alongside Loch Ness there is plenty of opportunity to play tourist.
Stage 1 (the A9) is done. Now it’s down the Great Glen to Fort William where Ben Nevis awaits. There is a lot of snow on the mountains so I hope the weather is kind and my guide is happy to make the ascent. I’ll know on Wednesday.
One thought on “Day 7: Saturday 23rd April”
Well done Chris, into week 2 with over 140 miles done. You blog is entertaining. Hope the sun shines and you don’t fall out with that little toe. Best wishes Jeremy & Ruth
