Rowardennan to Inverarnan 26 km

Inverarnan to Tyndrum 21km

 

Day 3 and day 4.
Apparently we've been fooled. It doesn't rain in Scotland and there are no pesky midges buzzing around at least that's what we've experienced so far. Another 2 stunning days. Plenty of sunscreen needed and just t-shirts. Beautiful landscape all around us.

 

 

 

Looking back at Loch Lomond. Hard to believe we hiked that entire shoreline.

 

 

Approaching the Drover's Inn. A welcome sight after 25 km. This place has been around since the 1700's

 

Start of day 4 on the way to Tyndrum

Tyndrum to Bridge of Orchy 12km

 

Day 5: A very short hike today, basically a rest day. Heard rumours of other Canadians walking the Way and met up with them this morning. Had a pleasant afternoon, snoozing, reading and sketching. Tomorrow we've got 22km into more remote highlands. Weather continues to amaze. Even the locals say multiple days of sunshine just doesn't happen here. We are very lucky.​
