Yesterday Start Tomorrow

Sunday 20th May

34km

926m ascent

The Dunalastair Hotel

A good breakfast set me up for the days road walk as I headed out to a fine morning regretting only the size of the bar bill!

Tummel Bridges

The road was quiet to Tummel Bridge with the power station there working well after the last few days rain. I thought that I might have lunch at the hotel but looking at the sign and driveway it may not be suitable for Challengers!

Loch Tummel at Foss

It was now a warm and very pleasant day and after watching the geese, swallows and a lone swift over the water, boats and meadows at Foss I was quite happy to walk down the side of Loch Tummel in the shade of the trees.

A strange name!

There are numerous fishermen's campsites between loch and road and, it being Sunday afternoon, most were packing up and heading home. Roadside Flora

Distant Piper, where?
standing beside the tent!

Here he is!

From what I could see the caravan site near the Queens View would have caused a 'we are not amused' moment but as I passed that eyesore, down by the loch, a lone piper stood outside his tent, the haunting sound of the pipes a perfect accompaniment to my walk.

Clunie Dam

The road climbs away from the Dam before dropping steeply to the Linn of Tummel with fine views of the wooded valley.
Crossing the Coronation bridge above the Linn of Tummel, without much water as the majority is piped to the power station at Wester Clunie, I was on the path through some fine conifers to the River Garry.

Bonskeid House

Conifers

Passing under the spectacular Garry road bridge on a lovely path through the trees brought me to the well appointed camp site at Fascally where another food parcel awaited.
