Day 91: Inverarnen to Tyndrum

What can I say: each day is different but equally as beautiful. The West Highland Way truly is a great Walking trail! The weather today was just perfect: the sun shone and a light breeze just kept us from getting too hot with little fluffy white clouds drifting across a blue sky! Today was a totally different walk from yesterday with the path becoming more easily negotiated once we left Loch Lomond. The countryside opened out and, as we walked along Glen Falloch 

alongside the river of the same name

we were surrounded by mountains towering over us in magnificent splendour.

The path took us past the Falls of Falloch

and soon after, we crossed the river and began to climb the glen on the opposite side, following the route of the Old Military Road and soon turned NNW to enter a lovely, cool forest and, as we climbed higher, between the trees, the vista opened out in awe inspiring beauty.

On reaching a high point the path turned downward 

and we descended down to Strath Fillen, 

and followed the Glen all the way to our destination. An easy and enjoyable walk with magnificent views on all sides.
