Day 16(10) : Kinloch Rannoch to Faskally
Sunday 20th May
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!
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!
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.
|There are numerous fishermen's campsites between loch and road and, it being Sunday afternoon, most were packing up and heading home.|
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.
The road climbs away from the Dam before dropping steeply to the Linn of Tummel with fine views of the wooded valley.
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.
