Today was day 2 of our trip and we loaded up the bikes and cycled the short distance to the Brewery where we would leave the bikes outside the outdoor shop, thanks to the young lass working there. Here we would start the walk to Goatfell up the traditional tourist route, we had originally planned to go from Corrie but decided on this route at the last minute. It's a straight forward path that takes you all the way to the summit, we returned by the same route. When we did the 3 Corbetts the previous day we never seen a soul. Now we know why, everyone was up Goatfell. I've never seen so many people on a hill before. It took us 3hrs to do Goatfell and now all we had to do was cycle to Lochranza to the campsite which would be our accomodation for the night. At this campsite deer freely roamed, which all the kids liked including Dave.
