I look forward to your next sortie from the south :lol:

Thank you. we're not super fast either we just plod along. We'd enough food for another night but there was not really any other logical place to camp.

I remember crossing under the dam and thinking, I hope that huge valve doesn't open to let the water out the loch while we're crossing :shock:
You'll have another few trips North to come this year yet :D

We'd the same thought! it was just a small burn when we crossed it. I'm about out of holiday now as we have been taking trips to University open days - but maybe in the autumn.

The story gets more exciting with each retelling I'm sure. And you never stop learning.

Great report and great trip - I like the expression "Scotland's favourite view".
I'm looking forward to reading more of your adventures and to doing all these fine hills myself one day.
