I thought it was a super route, although Gail said more sun and fewer midges would have been an improvement.
It's always fun to walk on lots of different surfaces, don't you agree?
First there was a gravel track beside the loch,
Then a wooden bridge to cross,
Here I am doing the traditional Scottish 'dog in heather' pose (Westie™)
Now you see me walking across some micaceous schist (if it had been sunny, you'd be able to see the sparkle of mirror-like mica crystals),
Although a dull day, it was quite warm (for Scotland) so I enjoyed a wee paddle in the cool, clear mountain stream. But not, please note, a swim. NO WAY!
The path was soft and grassy as we approached the plateau...
Where I was thrilled to find lots of squelchy bogs (Gail less so).
Oh yes, and finally a nice view down to the loch where the walk began.
And then, with tiresome inevitability, the rain arrived. So Gail put away her camera and concentrated on navigating us through the rapidly descending cloud and back to the car park.
