Day 2 Drymen to RowandrennanJuly 30, 2017 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☀️ 13 °C
A tough day. After an early breakfast we headed off and it wasn't long before the Gortex jacket came off. A muggy day with light showers..As the morning progressed it became overcast and we made steady progress. We took the alternative route to Balmaha via Milton Buchanan. Easier than climbing Mt Conic.
We lunched at Balmaha and from there we were walking on the shore of Loch Lomand. Very romantic.
The rain came. It's Scotland.! We had some lightweight ponchos and decided to try them out. They were great. No sauna bath like the Gortex.
After 6 hours we were starting to tire and yes, they gave us. Couple of cruel ascents.
We finally reached Rowandrennen and had a dink at the pub,
A short walk later we reached the YHA. Beautifully located on the shores of the Loch.
8 hours in total and after a good meal , and for me a well earn glass of red it's bedtime.Read more
