Found My Namesake Pub

I have just pitched my tent next to the river around the back of the Kingshouse Hotel. 

Clearly I had to stay at a place called Kingshouse.

The walk today was across Rannoch Moor which the guide books warn us ‘can be a very tough stage of The West Highland Way if the conditions are poor. Luckily, today, the conditions were wonderful and the walk was easy if a tad long.

It was especially long for me because I wandered down the wrong track for a mile and a half and had to retrace my steps – never mind.

At Inveroran I had a pint of shandy ‘on the house’ because I had walked so far. I also had a nice toasted sandwich and another pint before the 10 mile hike across the spectacular Rannoch moor.

Tomorrow’s section includes The Devil’s Staircase which sounds like fun!

Off to the pub now for a proper evening meal – a real treat when wild camping.

    Graham, Richard your fellow End to End walker, if you remember we met in Jedburgh. I climbed Devils’ Staircase two days ago. Going up should not be a problem, but going down onto Kinlochleven will be a 2 1/2 hrs slog fown on an often very steep and stony path. I am in Fort Augustus tonight having just completed day 50 and 1017 mls, only 9 days and 170 mls to go. Good look and safe trip.
