Lenzie Scouts head up the West Highland Way

7th May 2014

Last Saturday, at 8am we set off in the minibus from the scout hall. We were heading for Rowardennan, where the last walk along the West Highland Way ended.

This walk was slightly different as we did not walk with the Clyde Region Scouts instead it was just the eight 12th Glasgow Scouts and four of our leaders. Mother Nature was very kind to us for a change, it was dry and quite warm. The path was fairly flat and we started at the top of a steep hill/cliff next to the loch and worked our way down until lunch when we were almost level with the loch. Just before lunch we came across a stream off the mountain which went under the path. A few of us decided to go through the hole under the path and out the other side. At lunch we were next to another stream in which we threw large logs down, some bounced, some snapped and some just fell.

After lunch we headed off along the last part of the walk which was very flat along the loch. We had a few stops on beaches where we threw stones aimlessly into the loch. In no time at all came across a huge waterfall which we crossed by a bridge and ended up at the Inversnaid hotel, in which most of us had a well-earned snack of some hot chips.

Thanks to Grant Bissett for sending us his report on the day
