Digging deep now. Yesterday especially, but today too. In some ways a similar walk, conveniently split into three parts. Inverarnan to Crianlarich, onto to Tyndrum and finally Bridge of Orchy.
It was a slog. As the weather varied only between light rain and steady rain, gradually spirits that were already not especially high sank to that level where I just want to get it all over with. Fortunately the ground was nowhere near the difficulty of yesterday, but mud was the underlying theme.
I wasn’t in any sort of mood to do my David Bailey thing, but the appearance of a viaduct persuaded me to break the duck for the day. Later a nonsensical sign caught my eye on a gate that was connected to nothing and protecting nothing. But it MUST be closed, please.
Don’t really want to talk about the walk in detail. 19 miles that took me to 785, past the ¾ mark, but I was not aiming to throw any parties.
Three days left on the West Highland Way. The views are scenic without doubt, though on days that are not as overcast and miserable as today. All three days are forecast to be more wet than dry, but at least they are all shorter than these last two.
