... a little rain never hurt anyone (or my camera too much). The fog and must against the mountains were pretty cool as was the castle ruins that we got to see. Sadly, no Nessie spottings today, my eye or sonar.
Then, after a quick stop at the hotel to change we were on our way to swim with Nessie. It did not appear, but we still jumped in anyway! There were 23 of us crazy people in total, jumping off the dock ...

A wonderful Mountain day!
Martin and I set off promptly, thinking that if the weather turned we would just do Carn Liath then retreat and were walking at 9am from the visitor centre at Aberarder. We followed the excellent path up to the more established birch forest, and ...

Day 8 tomorrow - Invermoriston to Helmsdale - the end is almost in sight. Keep the support coming - the guys really look forward to reading your posts at the day's end and it strengthens them spiritually for the coming day's trial of strength against the elements and the open road. Okay, I admit that last bit was a little OTT but needs must where the muse drives.
