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]

East Lomond

Monday 25 May


At 4pm, with the car park rapidly emptying, off we set for East Lomond. The delay was worthwhile for more than one reason: the haze had lessened and the sunny periods become longer, with just the occasional wispy cloud drifting in to obscure it.

An easy path led us the mile and a quarter to the summit, and a topograph there told us what we could see in the 360 degree view. We didn't need any help to identify some of the landmarks, such as this morning's hills. Berwick Law, which we visited in February last year, was barely visible through the remaining haze.

Within an hour we were back at Colin, having met not a single person on this clearly (and justifiably) popular pimple.
