Cannich Weekend

Over the weekend of 18-19th of September a group of 13 Ramblers set off to Drumnadrochit for 2 days of walking in the Glen Affric area; an area famed for its special beauty. Unfortunately the weather was not as kind as it might have been.  The original plan to do a high walk had to be cancelled when the low cloud and rain made the route unsuitable. However we were all able to do the planned low level walk around Loch Affric, a circular walk of around 11 miles.  The weather did improve and we did enjoy a sunny afternoon. A bonus when we found later it had been raining all day a short distance away at Drumnadrochit. Saturday night was spent at the Loch Ness Inn for an excellent group dinner, with special thanks to Postie John for organising it.

All safely over thanks to the men, now drying off.  Some had boots on some had boots off.

On Sunday, the weather was still misty and very damp, and after taking local advice it was decided to change plans and instead of returning to Glen Affric area to instead travel to the outskirts of Inverness and do another low level walk along the River Ness and the canal. This provided a pleasant morning walk of around 7 miles.
