Tuesday's Travels blog post
Day 2 of the hike and, after a night of comfort in the Great Glen Hostel, we set out on the penultimate leg of our Great Glen journey. This was a long stretch which took us from the swing bridge at Laggan to Gairlochy. The route followed the shores of Loch Lochy with the occasional steep hill to negotiate. The weather was variable with periods of sunshine and periods of very light rain, that type of rain that comedian Peter Kay refers to as the one that “gets you wet through”. It didn’t dampen the spirits and both groups finished in the sunshine.
It was then back to the hostel for dinner and Brendan’s customary 145th expedition quiz which tests how observant the Scouts have been over the previous days. Tomorrow we complete the final section from Gairlochy to Fort William.
