Arranged to meet Chrit at the Loch Long car park at 0800. She and her family here on holiday from Holland; hubby and kids opted for golfing instead of walking. She'd posted on the forum a while back, looking for a walking buddy. Nice for me -- a good long low-level walk with not too far to drive.
After the usual faffing around finding the path-start "proper," we kept up a good pace, and found plenty to chat about. No rain for the entire walk, although it had been forecast.
Returned to the car park at 1200; changed shoes (me), and met the rest of her family at the pub in Arrochar for lunch. Home by ~2:30.
Lovely day, lovely company. A nice reminder that it's not all about bagging Munros.
