Glencoe Mountain Resort, £6 to camp
We managed to pick up a ride from outside the Bridge of Orchy Hotel back to Tyndrum and started the trail where I left it the day before
Thunderstorms were forecast, could we beat them?
Not likely! It didn’t take long until the skies turned a majestic colour of grey and we donned our rain gear
Threatening grey skies
The River Orchy a few steps from the Bridge of Orchy hotel

Rain showers are imminent!

Walking along the old military road
Needless to say, it rained and thundered as we made our way across the most exposed section of the West Highland Way, Rannoch Moor! I wish I could have taken more photos but considering the circumstances, we barely stopped!
