Day 26: Loch Lomond (opposite Island I Vow – Inversnaid – Rowardennan – Sallocy)
12.5 miles – sun and clouds, never too hot nor too cold, perfect walking weather
I spent the whole day winding south on the eastern shore of Loch lomond. Sometimes I was by the water’s edge, sometimes a little back from the shore, but always I was surrounded by ancient forrest – oak, alder and birch. Its tranquility softened my soul and I found peace; this was a happy day. Always slow going, I could not feel dispirited in this environment, and my ankle was on the mend.
