The Road goes ever on and on; Down from the door where it began;
Now far ahead the Road has gone; And I must follow, if I can;
Pursuing it with eager feet; Until it joins some larger way;
Where many paths and errands met; And whither then? I cannot say.

[JRR Tolkien, Lord of the Rings]

Day 0 - to Torridon



Thurs 8 May (0930-1600)
Distance: 8.5? Miles
Weather: overcast but only one (slow-moving) shower
Number of cuckoos heard: maybe just one, but it's very persistent (24 hrs) and following us!

Today was a good day in absolutely gorgeous surroundings and in excellent company.

However, so much time has been spent being sociable this evening that I've run out of time to write about it in any detail.

So, no tales today about the nice bothy, picturesque lochs, stunning, towering hills and good paths.

Some of today's surroundings will feature again tomorrow, as we will retrace our steps back to today's highest point before going off in a different direction. I'll try to reserve some time for a proper post tomorrow.
