On the way Glencoe.

After a good leisurely breakfast and lots of goodbyes  I headed West to Glencoe from Newtonmore after a great weekend at the RAF Scotland reunion. I stopped at Creag Dubh to watch the wild goats then headed to Fort William via Laggan. There was more fresh snow on the tops and a it looked a great day. I had helped the Scotland On Sunday newspaper with an article and one of Joss Gosling’s photos from Beinn Eighe in 1951 and got a copy to take to him in Fort William. Joss had missed the Reunion but maybe this would cheer him up?

On the way I stopped at the layby near the big sands at Loch Rannoch it was a lot tider after it had been cleaned by the Council but the rubbish was still there by the river bank – 3 tyres and a fridge Fly tipped in such a stunning area.​

The lovely Glencoe Lochan and the Pap behind it stunning light!

I then stopped at Fort William to see Joss and drop the paper of to him and then onto Glencoe for a wander and see how much snow was on the tops! There is a bit but after that a wander round the lochan and then off to meet Sue who I am staying with! 

Today I am off into Glencoe it’s a good forecast so we will see what the weather brings!
