The 2013 Challenge, day 3: Lochailort to Glensulaig (4)
On the far side of the bridge I encountered an impromptu walking companion, and we walked together as far as Callop. This is not a particularly exciting piece of walking, especially when it is raining. It is forestry road, made up to take heavy lorries, a little undulating. My companion's car was parked at Callop, so we went our separate ways. I was able to take my waterproofs off for a while as I walked beside Loch Eil; but when I stopped for a sit-down and a glug at Locheilside station, it began to rain again, heavily. Still, at least I was in shelter and able to put my waterproofs back on in a leisurely manner. As I did so, however, I noticed that I had quite a serious tear in the seat of my waterproof trousers. Nothing I could do about it right now - but I made a note to see what I could do about repairs at the first opportunity.
