I had a leisurely start today, it looked like an easier day on paper. All todays route would again be new to me which I was looking forward to. There would be no rain today while I walked :-) As a bonus, just as I started walking I met Peter, Lee and Matt. It was good to chat with folk of a like mind.
|The track East above Loch Affric made for easy progress, the Scots Pine on heere are superb. |
Looking back the head of Glen Affric was gradually disappearing behind, a mixed emotion for the hills of the West are special.
|We stopped to take in the view at the head of the Allt Garbh.|
Lee, Matt and Peter looking back to the Carn Eige hills.
|As we approached the small lochan near Allt an Laghair, we came upon this german expedition equiped Land Rover. They'd certainly looked for an isolated spot to spend the previous night.|
|We stopped for a snack overlooking the lochan. This would make a superb wildcamp spot, but it was way to early in the day to consider it for tonight.|
|As we walked through Cougie the weather improved it was now very warm....just in time for the ascent to the Bealach Feith na Gamhna.|
