Fort Augustus



Just a quick post this morning. I’m currently sitting in a hostel in Fort Augustus, waiting on Dougie and Brian getting ready for our hike to Invermoriston. I think I’ll be waiting a while. Last night can be classed as a wild one. After walking into Fort Augustus and seeing all the amenities, we got a tad excited. Not that Fort Augustus is full of pubs, clubs and casinos, but compared to some places on our hike, it sure as hell felt like it.

The walk yesterday was good. We walked along an old railway line, and we had some fantastic views over Loch Oich and the canal. We have managed to get our first glimpse of Loch Ness, which I am happy about. I have never spent any great amount of time at Loch Ness, so it will be nice to be walking along side it for the next 3 days.

Today we have an easy walk. Only 7 miles. I’m hoping to have the walk finished within 3 hours. We now all have our own aches and pains, mainly blisters and tight muscles. Although it didn’t stop us from dancing last night, so I doubt it’ll stop us from completing our journey.
