Not only has the weather improved but the scenery also.
Stopped several times along the way and did a couple of walks - one being through hilly pine forest and along the side of Benmore Lake, which was the most beautiful deep turquoise in colour. The other up a steep track which was very narrow and had sheer drops. This proved a bit too much for me as the sheer drops gave me the 'heebee geebees', so I threw in the towel and we retraced our route back down to the start.
Also visited a place called Clay Cliffs - had to travel along a 7 km gravel road and walk away - but the area had the most extraordinary landscape.
Total today 180 Kms.
