ECRAD Long Run – Day 3

Day 3 - Bridge of Orchy to Lundavra

Today would see the half-way mark passed on this epic trip and at days end, the West Highland Way would almost have been completed.

Anne was supporting Sue throughout today.

The first stage would take Anne and Sue up to the Glencoe Mountain Resort.

Many friendly exchanges with others following the WHW and an enjoyable break at the ski centre made for a pleasant start to the day.

The next stage included the Devil’s Staircase. Shortly before this climb to the highpoint of the WHW,  the rain started to fall and it begin to get a lot colder. 

After the run up the staircase and a good pace down the other side, some supplies ( cake! ) were taken on-board at Kinlochleven.

Then it was straight back up the hills leaving Kinlochleven behind and out over a bleak Laraig Moor.

Not many others were seen on this part of the route and with the weather worsening and “blawin a hoolie” the Day 3 end at Lundavra was more than welcome
