The West Highland Way Day 5

Inversnaid to Inveraren

This part of the Way is probably the most arduous, going by comments of other walkers over the years and past experience. The going is tough, the track is very rocky and winding ad well as up and down. We never really took that many pictures on this stretch. But one of the first I took was this.

Yes indeed, there is a place they call a cave where Rob Roy hid when he was being hunted. It's more like a bundle of boulders that have settled into a shelter. It pretty awkward to and I was not about to try on a really wet day KC not withstanding.

I did take this view of the Loch a little later on but by this time you all must be bored of the sight of it.

Nearer to our destination is Doune, here we are approaching it.

And here is Doune Bothy, weary jokers can bunk down here for free of a night providing they respect the countryside and property, take their rubbish etc away with them and leave things as they find them.

At Inveraren you'll find the Drovers Inn, a good place to have your dinner and a drink or two.

This is a little off the way but well worth it. We stayed just up the road on Bien Glass Farm which is right on the way, they do everything from bunkhouses to B&B.
