Distance 15.92 miles – cumulative 170.32 miles – 5hrs 40mins – walking time 4 hrs 50 mins – pace 3.3 mph – B&B Dornoch View
We got caught out first thing when just as we thought the tent was dry to pack away for a few days ( B&Bs for the next 2 nights) it poured down, within seconds we went from bright sunshine to torrential downpour.
Just as quickly the day turned into a beautiful sunny day and the scenery was stunning as the Great Glen Way took us above and along Loch Ness. The Great Glen Way had a high level and low level option and we took the high level route and were rewarded with fantastic views down the Loch and of the Ben Nevis and Glen Coe mountain ranges beyond.
Had a close encounter with an adult deer as we neared the end of the day but just as we had the photo lined up a car frightened it off.
We had a very friendly welcome at the B&B which is used by plenty of walkers and cyclists.
We still have all our toe nails and no blisters, our feet and bodies generally are holding up very well. Due to the finer weather the Scottish airforce have made an appearance and they have landed two successful strikes on Lynn.
