Scottish National Trail: Into Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park (day 5)

Today: 35km | Total: 151km

After a not so great night of rest we left before 8am for this long day. First stop would be Aberfoyle some 18km away. We made it in 16km thanks to mistakenly opting for the road instead of the hill route. Rain was today more of a constant. We got lucky in a small village that the local shop sells coffees. What a strange experience to be in such old school shop. Even credit books for village clients he keeps, is a post office, atm, exchange office, liberary and public toilet.

 

Laura’s comment (day 5): El recorrido hoy fue totalmente diferente, caminamos a través de un parque precioso con mucha naturaleza, luego encontramos un lago muy grande llamado ‘Loch Lomond’.

 

After a lunch in Aberfoyle we went on. The weather was nicer and the path through forests into Loch Lomond and The Trossachs national park. Amazing views! One issue – wild camping not allowed. So off to Tesco and then the campsite (30mins more walking, sorry Laura 😘). Campsite was great. First hot shower since the wedding in Dunkeld 6 nights ago… Do i need to say more? And a pasta Bolognese on top. So much, we slept well and happy. 🍲 😴 😊 ⛺
