As I left Fort William, Kenny and his four walkers drove past me on their way home to Glasgow. They stopped and mentioned that they tried to telephone me yesterday to arrange dinner together. As is typical, I hadn’t turned my phone on, so I missed their message. It was a nice thought, though, and I appreciate the gesture.
Along the way, I met two cyclists from France, and Keith, from the midlands of England, who completed the WHW yesterday and is now walking the Great Glen Way. He was going farther today than I did, so we parted at Gairlochy.
The forecast for tomorrow is more rain. The local Scots are saying that they can’t remember a summer with so much rain, but I suspect they have short memories and say the same thing every year.
