Walked only 14.65 miles this week

Total to date 954.47 miles

Still walking along Caledonian Canal, heading for Loch Ness. Urquhart Castle, on the shore of Loch Ness, is one of the most visited ruins in Scotland. A few years ago, when our family was there, Japanese tourists were lining up to have their picture taken with my DH, who always wears a kilt when in Scotland. I quickly learned to go up the stairs behind him, and to come down the stairs in front of him... you can probably guess why!

Time to catch up a bit.

Since I last posted on September 6, I've stepped it up and walked 118.60 miles
Total walked to October 11/14: 939.82 miles

I left you at the Falkirk Wheel, built to connect the Union Canal with the Forth and Clyde Canals without requiring a series of locks.

From there, I followed the Forth and Clyde Canal to Drymen, the beginning of the Highlands, and joined the West Highland Way, a 95-mile walking trail from Glasgow to Fort William. The Way is a heavily-travelled walking path which follows the east shore of Loch Lomond, before coming to one of the military roads built under the supervision of Thomas Telford to improve some of the old drovers' tracks used to move cattle.

After crossing Rannoch Moor, near the site of the infamous Glencoe Massacre, staying overnight at the King's House Hotel, the path continued up the Devil's Staircase to Kinlochleven. Kinlochleven was once known as the "Electric City" because the power generated by the hydroelectric plant in the mountains above the town meant that it was the first town in Britain in which every home had electric lights. The power was generated to run the aluminium smelter in the town; the workers from the smelter benefitted as a result of the over-abundance of power. It was on that trip that we learned that in England,it is "aluminium", with an extra "i", rather than "aluminum".

Interestingly, I stayed in Kinlochleven once before, in 1993, on a trip with my son who had just graduated from university and was heading back in the fall to begin studies for his PhD.

From Kinlochleven, a 14-mile walk took me to Fort William, in the shadow of Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in Scotland. I've been to Fort William several times, and have never found it an attractive, or welcoming, city, so passed through quickly.

Back on the trail, I followed the Caledonian Canal to Loch Lochy... And there the story ends for today.

Haven't posted lately, but have been walking up a storm!

Since I last posted on August 14, I've walked 79.83 miles
Total walked to date (September 6) ... 821.22 miles

The walk from Peebles to Edinburgh wasn't particularly interesting, as it became progressively more built up. Edinburgh is a great city, and it would be very easy to spend a week there, exploring the castle, climbing Arthur's Seat, listening to a concert in the Gardens below Prince's Street and perhaps touring Holyrood Palace, the Queen's official residence in Scotland. And then there are always the many bars along Rose Street...

Leaving Edinburgh, we stay south of the Firth of Forth, heading toward Loch Lomand and the Trossachs National Park. The path follows the Union Canal toward Linlithgow, birthplace of Mary Queen of Scots.

The route continues through Kilsyth and Drymen, following the Forth and Clyde Canal, and passing the Falkirk Wheel, a rotating boat lift which quickly takes boats from one level to another, instead of going through a series of locks.

This section of the walk is mainly through open land with hills in the distance, and isn't particularly interesting. i'm looking forward to Loch Lomand and the Trossachs. I especially remember one flower-filled village which I visited several years ago.

Thanks for reading,
Gail

Past Peebles and almost to West Linton.only about 30 miles south of Edinburgh. Already the area is becoming more built up, and any time I am near the road there i s a lot more traffic. I'm looking forward to reaching Edinburgh, which I know and well. Thos will be my 4th visit, and I've decided to treat myself with a nice hotel for a couple of days, and some nice meals. Eating on the road, especially in some of the smaller villages, can be very predictable.

The most interesting place I walked through on this section was Melrose, which is dominated by the magnificent ruins of Melrose Abbey.

King Robert the Bruce died in 1329, during the Scottish War of Independence. Before he died, Bruce asked Sir James Douglas to take his heart with him on a pilgrimage to Spain, to fight with the Moors. Douglas honoured the king's wish, and the preserved heart, in a silver chest, went with the Scottish fleet when it sailed to Spain.

Douglas was killed in a 1330 battle. The silver chest was found near his body.and the surviving Scots took it back to Scotland,where Bruce's heart was finally laid to rest in Melrose Abbey, although his body is in the cathedral at Dunfermline.

Last week before driving vacation: 608.98 miles
Total during 3 1/2 week vacation: 63.40 miles
Total since arriving home July 16: 10.65 miles

Total walked to date: 683.03 miles!!!

I've actually crossed into Scotland, and am about 7 miles south of Jedburgh, a beautiful town in the Lowlands. One of the main features is Jedburgh Abbey, built in 1138 by King David. 900 years later, the Abbey ruins dominate the town. Mary Queen of Scots house is in the town, and there are many historic homes in the area. The town of just under 5000 people is known for weaving, equestrian events, fishing and tourism.

I first visited Jedburgh with my son in 1993, and was there in 2004 and 2010 as well.

24.5 miles walked this week, for a new total of 585.38 miles
emoticon emoticon emoticon

Past Middleton, approaching Langdon Beck. Rainy, very wet underfoot, pretty much sticking to the trail and hoping for better weather soon.

I did make one stop, though, to tour the old castle in a village called Barnard Castle. My son and I visited there back in, I think, 1993 to celebrate his university graduation, before he went back in the fall to work on his PhD.

Walked 15.6 miles last week, so a total of 36.6 miles since I last tracked my route.

That makes a total of 484.35 miles since I started my walk.

I am now walking on the Pennine Way, and have just reached Hebden Bridge.
