Leaving Kings House after a hearty breakfast at 9.25, we began a 19 mile plod to Tyndrum.
The first ten miles were very comfortable, plodding over the beautiful edge of Rannoch Moor to Inveroran. Very little uphill, and very little down. The whole time, though, surrounded by the Black Mountains and wide open moorland. I saw and heard many Grouse hopping and chirping around, though none would come close enough for any pictures to be taken!
After strolling through Inveroran, there follows a short sharp climb from opposite The Inveroran Hotel. Upwards for a mile, then levelling out for a while, before descending rapidly into Bridge of Orchy. 12 miles completed, then a further 7 easy miles to the lovely little village of Tyndrum.

Glengarry House, a very fine guesthouse indeed!
