Day 3 Great Glen Way – Laggan to Invermorsten
First view of Loch Ness
A long day today, 18 5 miles from Laggan to Invermorsten. After a great stay at the Forest Lodge BnB I set out at 8AM and pushed the pace hoping to make my hotel by 5PM. I did far better reaching Invermorsten by 3:30 a very fast day for me.
It was a hard day, not so much because of the miles but because of two muscles I’ve tweaked. One in my left shoulder and one on my back. The back muscle causes me to bend over and stretch it every 15 minutes or so on flat ground, less often when I’m climbing or descending. The shoulder at times knots up and I need to stop and work it. The injuries are more annoyance that debilitating but they wear you down.
Best weather of the trip today, started out sprinkling rain which transitioned to clouds and eventually full on Scottish sunshine.
I made my way today along Oich Loch, the Caledonian Canal Way and finally along the slopes of Loch Ness which will be my companion the rest of the way.
Tomorrow I head for Drumnodrochit, home of not one but two Loch Ness Monster museums. If both my back is bothering and we get rain on the last day I may spend the day walking the museums and taking the bus to Inverness. Lot’s of miles left in Spain but we’ll see how it goes. – Rev Kane
