A view of the horse shoe scree on the opposite side of Loch Ness, from the low-level route between Fort Augustus and Invermoriston (I took the low-level route because of the approaching storm). I don’t have any pictures of Fort Augustus because of the rain, but I did stop for a late lunch and couldn’t believe the number of people there – it was like trying to walk down London’s Oxford St (although these were tour groups not people out shopping) which came as a shock and surprise considering I hadn’t seen anyone for the past two days!

The wonderful Bracarina House B&B where I ended up spending two nights and had a wonderful relaxing zero day. There were fresh made scones at breakfast daily and delicious shortbread biscuits in the room.
