JOGLE Day 16 16/07/17 Rowardennan – Drymen 13 miles

With a shorter day in store had a more relaxed start then a lift back to a start point close to where we finished yesterday. It was great to have Dave Smith join me again for the morning and we covered the 5 miles back to Milarrochy at a reasonably leisurely pace with a couple of calf-warming climbs on the way along the Loch side path. Some much better views across the water today. After lunch and feeling physically a bit better than yesterday I headed off alone towards Drymen…and once again the heavens opened. With 3 choices of route to Drymen, excluding the main road, I opted to miss out going over Conic Hill in the clouds and took the alternative West Highland Way through Milton of Buchanan and up into the forest above Drymen for some final views of Loch Lomond before dropping back down to finish mid afternoon as the sun came out. Tomorrow it’s goodbye to the West Highland Way and hello to the canals as I start eastwards towards the borders. Over 300 miles now – can’t really believe it’s that far!

  1. Wow Dave, well done on your epic perseverance…..29 miles is a huge achievement, especially not feeling well and in bad weather!! Glad you had an easier day to follow and hope you’re feeling better. You must be due a rest day soon!?
