Day 4; Drumnadrochit to Inverness; 20 miles; 20 degrees

Supplies for the day from "The Baking Birds", yummy cakes to keep us going.

Leaving Drumnadrochit behind.

Views of Urquart Castle castle as we begin to climb. 

Stunning Scotland; and we complain about the weather?

Top of the ridge as we climb along Loch Ness.

Forest paths were a little moe rugged today; trainers held up well though.

Welcome to the Scottish Highlands, saw many a haggis running wild in the heather.

Highest point on the last day; the generally downhill decent was appreciated on our tired legs in twenty  degree heat.




Found another quirky coffee stop; abriachan campsite was the stop with the amazing columbian coffee. The site was founded by an Eco friendly owner who volunteered on the lifeboat on Loch Ness, being scared of trees at night, she wanted to conquer her fear in first person, so set up the sight. 

The route returned to a small B road for a time, the scerery which surrounded was something not to be missed. 

First glimpse of Inverness; a welcomed site after our hottest and toughest day of walking.

After a further 6 miles; we hit the outskirts of Inverness, reunited with the Caledonian canal and let to the islands crossing the river Ness.

Is this our last sign to follow? Let's hope so . . . 

The view of Inverness Castle, as we end our 20 miles for the day and 79 miles in total. Now to rest in the sun.


What a week; crossing the fault line. We can't lie and say we didn't struggle. But in the end we made it in one piece; sunburnt and sore from our adventure into the highlands. Challenging; Rewarding; Relaxing.
