Day 8: Loch Ossian – Meanach

Thursday 31st May 2018

Distance: 8 miles [view on map]

I started the day at Loch Ossian Hostel, taking it easy and having a cooked breakfast.

This was a short day of walking 10 – 6 at a slow pace, stopping at Staoineag Bothy for lunch, where I also tried to make some improvements: I started to fill the eroded path with rocks from the stream.

I stopped at Meanach Bothy for the night. It felt very remote and was eerily quiet, despite being just the other side of Ben Nevis, 12 miles from the significant town of Fort William.

I only met one group of walkers all day.
