A very good morning from the spider forest. Woke up with thousands of bugs and spiders all in out tent and bags 😅Took the tent down, made some beans and sausages on the stove and got ready to walk to the next town. I think we slept next to nothing, we felt so stressed over the fact we could get caught.
At some point I though someone was walking our way, but it was R that was talking in his sleep 😅 Thank lord it was just him, haha!
Oh, if we only known here what was coming our way…
More highland cows! YEEY! This time we even walked trough their enclosure, which brought us even closer to them. They are so cute!
Just found out what was infront of us. The Conic Hill! Doesn’t look as steep as it actually was. Especially with R massive blisters.
Half way up Conic Hill.
After lots of huffing and puffing, we made it to the top! Such a lovely view over Loch Lomond. Such a dream to be in the Scottish highlands! All the mountains, the highland cows and the people. OMG! Everyone has been so incredibly nice. Everyone says hi when you pass and people take their time to talk to you.
I truly recommend getting tea with you if you gonna do this trek. It have definitely taken us trough the trip. When you feel tired and down after hours of walking, its definitely nice to sit down and have some tea, it defiantly reenergised us both. A few tea bags, sugar and some powdered milk (powdered milk takes the weigh off). Drinking tea with this views is not a bad idea, haha.
I mean, look at the views 😍
The way down. We needed to stop and attend R blisters. It was really hard on our toes walking down with our heavy bags.
I like how I caught a bee in this picture 😂But its so beautiful!
The way from Conic hill to the little village of Balmaha.
Got down to Balmaha, Had a pint at the Oak tree inn before we walked to a camping site a little further north of Loch Lomond. You definitely need to stop at the Oak Tree Inn if you ever doing the WHW. It is a family owned inn with great food and drinks. It super cosy both on the inside and outside.
Walking to the camping site we encountered the most beautiful beaches. I was honestly amazed! haha
With the beautiful Oak trees hanging down over the sand 😍
Took this picture from the campsite beach.
Camped at a placed called Malarrochy Bay camping. It was okay. The showers were a bit nasty and if you wanted to buy something in their shop you needed to pay with cash. And I hate paying with cash, especially when you don't have any 😅
