After a lovely stay at the Drymen’s Inn we left early to walk another 13 miles to Rowardennan.
Again it was an incredibly beautiful day with very few clouds in the sky so we were in good spirits!
Heading up through the forest was great as it meant we had some shade for a while and it was so quiet apart from the birdsong – bliss!
Just on the other side of the forest we caught our first glimpse of Loch Lomond, the loch we will be walking along for the next two days.
We then took the high road up and around Conic Hill – FYI this road is not available in lambing season and took in the scenery.
Feeling very tired already we stopped for a quick refresh and food at a pub in Balmaha. We continued on along Loch Lomond and went back into the Queen Elizabeth Forest Park where the path became quite narrow and twisted but remaining by the lake.
We followed the woods all the way up until Rowardennan where we reached the Youth Hostel which was in a beautiful house (unfortunately I didn’t get a photo!)
The food here was quite awful but you could buy wine and order a packed lunch for the next day so not all bad! The view from the garden was epic though.
Such a tiring day and only 5 days until Fort William, wish us luck!
