The Ben Nevis Chronicles: A Leisurely Stroll…

After much settling in and picture taking, we decided to go for a walk up the road to see the waterfalls. This was also after we had all phoned the mothership to wish said Mothers a happy Mothers day. The walk was in theory a 2 hour round trip.

After setting off we passed several sheep, who would freeze when they saw us, then run away if we moved or made any noise. Quite amusing really…

Othery local wildlife we encountered was the Highland Coo. Big furry cows with ginormous horns. I don’t think I have ever been so close to a cow as I was on this walk!

After the pee-scapades, we headed upriver to some rocks along side the riverbank and had a whale of a time climbing on them and taking some snappy snaps!

After getting our feet wet on the damp riverbank we headed back…trudging along the road with wet feet. B-e-a-utiful. After being out all day 2 hours they said… We were all shattered by the time we got back! But, we figured it was like a practise walk before going up Ben…
