TGOC 2022 day 3

Well the day started well with a dry spell and a good drying breeze so at least the tent got put away dry. Then a small wait for the others to catch up with me which happened around 8.45. Then we were off.

A nice morning, note new snow on the tops!

The first part was track walking, mainly contouring the hills though of course with a fair bit of rise thrown in. And of course during this the wind picked up bring the rain with it. But at least it was chiefly from behind us.

Then the fun began, 3k of bog walking paralleling a deer fence and the bog was wet! Very tiring. Once in up to both thighs. Very carefully extracting my self so not to leave shoes behind. Peter lead thru this section dancing away . Apparently he used to do races over this stuff!

A fairly mild hazard by the standards of the day

Eventually we got to our gate out and set of down to join general wades road. Again Peter led and found us a good route high above the river.

From the road on it was much easier, just a bit more of uphill and then down hill all the way into Fort Augustus and our accommodation.

I quick shower for me then out for a bowl of soup.

R and R till supper then an early bed.

  1. I don’t know if I could manage the bog walk! How did you know you wouldn’t sync up to your chest?
    Sounds rather brave to me.
    I’m glad you’re all OK,
