This section around Loch Lomond became a bit more of a scramble, climbing around large rocks

I was dreading that stile until I saw the gap in the wall to the left of it!

An honesty box where I drank my first ever Irn Bru – quite nice too!

The scenery is changing again now the trail has moved away from Loch Lomond

Howard came up to meet me for the weekend and we thought I would have made it to the Bridge of Orchy, but after cutting yesterday’s stage short because of the thunderstorms, I was 10km behind schedule! Today was long enough so I took the train from Tyndrum to meet him at the Bridge of Orchy and we would make our way back to Tyndrum the next morning to continue the trail where I left off.
