8th – 15th July 2017

July 15, 2017 by in

It was a pleasure to stay at the fully equipped Glenfruin Lodge.  We did and saw many things during our one week stay.

We drove the full circle around the National Park.  We went to Oban for a day and Fort William for a day as well.  The drive through Glen Coe (the valley, not the village) was outstanding!

Arienne and Paul walked the first part of the Three Lochs Way (from Balloch to Helensburgh) and Paul climbed to the summit of Ben Lomond. Tough hikes, but amazingly beautiful and recommended!

One day Elise went pony trekking at Rednoch (near Port of Menteith).  It was fun and they particularly keep your level of skill in mind.

Maisie (the cat) visited us from time to time, snoring all the time…  she was kind of like a second host.

Thank you very much!
