Day 10: Tuesday 26th April

The Great Glen Way, along the Caledonian Canal towards Fort William

More fresh snow overnight and noticeably colder setting out in the morning for the 11 miles from just south of Clunes to Fort William station.  I made it by 1pm so a rare opportunity for an afternoon off.  A bit of everything from the weather; some sunshine, some hail, some rain and some snow.  The odd windy squall also passed through but all over quite quickly.  Looks like this is the kind of weather for the next few days.

Lovely walking along the canal with some great views of Ben Nevis.  My guide, Dave, sent me a message yesterday evening to say we should be ok for the ascent on Sunday.  Full winter conditions at the top so crampons required.



Off into the foothills of Ben Nevis tomorrow and through the mountains for the next couple of days.  A good job Hazel found us such an ideal spot for this short break in Fort William, as well as finding time to discover more interesting craft shops.

  1. If it’s any consolation we have had the same weather in Wokingham today! Bit of everything.
    Good luck with the ascent on Sunday.
    Following your progress from my chair in the evening.
    Think you are doing brilliantly.
