WHW Days 4 & 5 Rowardennen to Crianlarich

Yesterday was glorious—sunshine and warm. It was a strenuous walk along the slopes of the unpopulated east shore of Loch Lomond. A rocky, muddy trail that was constantly up and down. But the scenery and weather made it a great day. And we had a great lunch at an isolated hotel.

We  spent the night in Inverarnan at the Drovers Inn, in a stone building from 1705.

Today was shorter but cool and wet. We’ve left Loch Lomon and now we are walking in the valley of the River Falloch. Tonight we are in a lovely B&B in a small town.

  1. Looks like you kids are having a great time! Travel safe and keep the reports and photos coming!

  2. Inge & Roy:

    Without taking anything away from the Devil’s Staircase, for us the most strenuous part of the West Highland Way was was the boulder-strewn, up and down stretch along the “bonnie, bonnie banks” of Loch Lomond. So give yourselves a pat on the back and perhaps a “wee dram” to mark your success and progress. Following your reports with anticipation.

  3. Love the journey so far; it looks so beautiful and at times deliciously remote 😉

  4. I am so glad you are having sunny weather. Scotland is breathtaking when the sun shines and your photos are great. Brings back some great memories of walks long ago!

    Nothing but clouds and rain here.
