I was on the bus and wanting to walk across Rannoch Moor. It was extremely windy and the bus driver said "make sure you have the wind at your back"
I was planning to go from Bridge of Orchy North across the moor, but when I saw the trees nearly bent double by the wind and in my direction, I asked the driver could he drop me near Kingshouse instead. Walking the moor the other way with the wind at my back was very much more pleasant and indeed I was bowled along by the wind. Others coming the other way were having much more difficulty. I really appreciated the bus drivers comments! Steve Critchlow
