Creep Week #3! – Hike Chats and Creepy Mountain People

IMG_3725

During my 2 weeks off from work, I walked the Stank Glen route in Callander and also along Loch Katrine in Aberfoyle. I filmed both of the walks (video below) but I thought I would share the photos!

The Stank Glen loop starts at one of the Ben Ledi routes, is 9km long, has brilliant paths and great views over Loch Lubnaig!

Loch Lubnaig

3 days after Stank Glen, my boyfriend and I set out to do Primrose Hill in Aberfoyle but when we arrived, I couldn’t be bothered, ha! We decided on a walk along Loch Katrine, but ended up doing 14 miles altogether! Despite the sore legs, it was worth it for these views.

Sunny, Snowy Scotland

PicMonkey Collage

Scottish weather is a complete mystery. Sun can’t be guaranteed in summer and snow can’t be guaranteed in winter; you just never know what it’s going to be like outside. Deciding what to wear when heading out can be problematic – we can’t always rely on the weather forecast!

Yesterday, the weather forecast said it was to be dry and sunny, so I jumped on the chance of a drive to Arrochar for a small hill walk. When I got there, it was pissing down. Typical.
(Tip for walking in Scotland: Always bring waterproofs!)
Thankfully, it dried up later on and it ended up being perfect walking weather!

Speaking of being prepared for the weather, in January, I was not prepared for the snow. Luckily, it only lasted for 2 days (thank GOD) and on one of the days, I enjoyed a stroll in Balloch Park, watching everyone sledging while pelting my boyfriend with snowballs.

Glen Loin and Coiregrograin Circuit

My boyfriend Fraser and I recently walked the Glen Loin and Coiregrograin Circuit, Arrochar in Loch Lomond and the Trossachs. We managed 12 miles in 5 hours, (it’s an 11 mile loop, but we took a wrong turn at one point!) and managed to escape the rain. It was enjoyable, but it showed me just how long it’s been since I’ve hiked – my legs were killing me!

You can see the walk in my new youtube video, which includes footage of us hitting a bog and almost getting stuck; story of my life.

Here are some photos from the day:
