Lunch at the wonderful Ness Deli in Drumnadrochit

Lunch at the wonderful Ness Deli in Drumnadrochit. There was a campground here (although off the trail and a bit of a walk from the centre of town) and I thought for a moment about staying and visiting the castle, but I really hate walking backwards… and I would have had to retrace my steps a number of times to go into Drumnadrochit for a meal, back to the campground, then pass through the town the next morning, so instead I kept going a further 12km…!

Home for the night at the rustic Abriachan Eco campsite. They have pigs so I was told to hang my food (where my shirt is hanging in this picture), and my food bag survived.
