Travelled to Fort William to catch train down to Milngavie, Glasgow to start the walk. Was really blustery but sunny and a few showers. A bit chilly - only a miserly 10* but the beauty of the place made up for it. Refuelled at Wetherspoons & then did a bit of shopping for those inevitable last minute/forgotten items!
Michelle decided to buy herself a new pair of walking boots - wtf, on the eve of the walk?! 🤦‍♀️ This could be a disaster!
Caught train and settled back to enjoy a relaxing and very scenic journey and we weren’t disappointed! An hour into the journey the enormity of the walk back suddenly hit me, and I felt quite overwhelmed. It passed tho & after another glass of wine, enthusiasm & determination quickly restored.
Arrived in Milgavie & hadn’t a clue how to get to our hotel so I asked a guy on way out of station. He was really helpful & told us to jump in his car & he’d take us there. We did without a moments hesitation - it was 10pm & had been a long day & hell the walk didn’t start til tomorrow! Poor man almost broke his back trying to lift our laden case into his car 😂
Of course a nightcap was essential to aid a good nights sleep in the lovely comfy premier inn beds ...
