Saturday 30th April 2016 – 1081.70 miles
Got up a bit later this morning. A bit chilly but beautiful sunshine.
We came across a stone with an inscription which said that a tree had been planted to commemorate a march of the 1st London Scottish regiment through the highlands in 1937. A second stone has been laid to replace the tree destroyed in June 1985. We will try to find out more – does anyone know the story?
All day we were treated to amazing views way into the distance – farmland, hills, woods and forests, snow capped hills and mountains. The weather today has been sunny and, although the wind was a bit chilly, it has been very warm in sheltered spots. We also had a couple of isolated showers but they didn’t last long. The road snaked along for several miles uphill then down again.
We walked on to the next viewpoint and looked out over the water to hills and mountains beyond – there was even a rainbow to welcome us. We could see Ardgay in the distance where we’ll be walking through tomorrow. A little further along, the road descended to a bridge over Easter Fearn Burn.
