England and Scotland, May 2005 : Day 11
< Previous Day | Index | Next Day >

Day 11, Sunday: This was my last full day in Fort Augustus. In the morning I moved into The Shieling, Les & Judy's place, and we cleaned up Crianlarich in preparation for the family renting it for the week, who were arriving later that day. After that, Les, Judy, Nan and I all bundled into the car for a drive around nearby Loch Garry, Loch Loyne, and Glenmoriston. We took a picnic lunch, but it turned out to be pretty cold and we opted for hot food when we found a viewpoint over Loch Loyne tended by a food vendor.

We also stopped and took a short walk to see a small spot where there wasn't any grass. Yes, I understand, but supposedly the reason there is no grass on that one small spot with grass all around, is that it is the footprint of someone; I forget who, but I believe a religious figure. I can not vouch for the authenticity of the footprint.
