Pitlochry

posted in: Scotland | 4
Well, I guess it was bound to happen. I post a blog entry about how hard the hiking is and immediately it gets easier. So hopefully by posting about bad weather, we should be in for some solid sunshine ... we're still waiting ... 
 
But really the walking has got easier. Yesterday we hiked 30 miles from the top of Glen Feshie, all the way down Glen Tilt to Blair Atholl. The scenery was great, conditions underfoot mostly very good (apart from 3 very "refreshing" river crossings!) and the lure of a proper meal and beer in Blair Atholl too hard to resist! 
 
Still, it felt good to only have to do 9 miles today to get into Pitlochry, where we're waiting for delivery of Neil's new boots. Come on Cotswold Outdoors, we need to keep walking !!!
