The 2016 Challenge, day 2: Taynuilt to Dalmally (1)

The Taynuilt Hotel did me a very fine breakfast of smoked salmon eggs Benedict on a gluten-free roll, which set me up in the right frame of mind for a day in the mountains. I was ready to leave at 8.45. Ray said he would be at least another 20 minutes, so I decided to press on without him as I had a big mountain day ahead of me, whereas he was aiming for the Loch Etive shore path.

My route this morning took me across the main road, down to the river, up a steep little alleyway to Brochroy church, and then to Bonawe Furnace. I reached this amazing 18th century industrial ruin before there was anyone there to take my money, so I wandered around it for free. My photograph doesn't really do it justice - but all the best views would have had to be taken into the strong morning sun, and they wouldn't have done it justice, either!

  1. Having walked the Glen Etive path I reckon that Ray had the tougher day, it was very slow going for me in 2005.
