I survived!

Loch OssianThe deathmarchers’ weekend away was quite a trip, and I am shattered at the end of it all.

Our journey – on the beautiful West Highland line – got off to an ominous start due to floods in Glasgow and we arrived at Corrour three hours late.

The next day, we split into three groups to take on the hills. I was in a group that went along the glen in which Loch Ossian lies and up the imposing Ben Alder, then back again.

It took us eleven hours, and apparently was eighteen miles. And we were the “intermediary” group, would you believe.

It was probably the longest I’ve ever walked at once, and needless to say I was exhausted at the end of it. Quite why I agreed to follow this up with a six mile walk the next day, I have no idea.

Masochism, probably. Though I am not in as much pain today as I thought I would be.

Anyway, as promised, there’s a few pictures – nothing spectacular as the weather wasn’t fantastic.

  1. The concept of it raining in the summer – much more, flooding during the summer is absolutely foreign to me. We won’t get rain here until…maybe November, and even that is just a guess. The real rain doesn’t come until February.
