Not The West Highland Way
Day 5: Ben Lui – Tyndrum
Monday 28th May 2018
Distance: about 6 miles (not recorded)
Awaking at 950m near the summit of Ben Lui, my phone battery was depleted, and so was I. I needed to get back to civilisation. My splash in a stream the previous day was nice, but after 4 nights I needed a proper shower!
After initially heading off in the wrong direction, I found the steep path down to the valley. In the valley I joined a track and the walking became much easier. I cut over the side of a hill through a forest track and down into Tyndrum.
In Tyndrum I stopped for lunch at the Green Welly stop, which is basically a service station. I then checked into a campsite and showered. I relaxed at the campsite to recharge, and also recharge my phone! Doing nothing, I found (not even walking), was quite hard!
No photos from this day unfortunately due to my dead phone battery.
