Accumulated kms walked:
This section of the trail was described as a great walk in good weather, a total shit fight in bad. Today the weather couldn't have been better and still, when we pulled in at Glencoe Mountain Resort at 11.45 we still felt battered by the weather. We had intended to stop for lunch at Glencoe and then walk the 3km to Kingshouse to spend the night.However when we reach Glencoe we were told that Kingshouse was closed for renovation. You could still camp but there were no facilities opened, so we made the decision to stay. Since we were staying The Spunky Rooster decided that it wasn't to early for a beer .With good wifi and a sheltered from the wind it was a nice place to sit and catch up on the world.
The trail today was best described as wild the book indicated that "this is a wild and remote section of the West Highland Way is one of the last great wildernesses of Europe". Tonights camp spot looks straight onto Scotland’s most photographed mountains, Buachaille Etive Mor.
Tomorrow we tackle Devils Staircase
