Go BackLoch Ness - Tuesday 3rd April
We departed from Invermoriston at 9am. We had tomato soup and rice pudding for breakfast, it was… interesting. We all found it hard to walk with blisters on our feet and aching back from the first days hike. We kept our spirits high though listening to Stephens wails and the group singing ‘Flower of Scotland‘.

We met our first fellow hiker, Jens from Germany and interviewed him. We all took photos and then he offered his camera for a photo for him, we were all put to shame by the more than professional piece of equipment he had. We were amateurs compared to him.

We had snack size cereal boxes for lunch. After lunch we discovered the ‘Valley of the Dead Frogs’ which was a road alongside a marsh area. We arrived at the Drumnadrochit Backpackers youth hostel at 4pm, it was the best sight we had seen all day. We decided on using our own money for dinner and bought a chippie.

Most of us went to bed early after an exhausting two days. We had only walked 14 miles but it felt like 24miles.
