Scotland 4: Day 25

04.21.11 | Inverness, Scotland | 19:49

I woke up this morning and felt the need to go for a walk-a loooong walk. I I woke up this morning and felt the need to go for a long walk. I walked through town, bought some bread, bottled water, M&Ms, a subway sandwich, and hit the road- I walked to Loch Ness. I want you to be impressed because I did all this in new shoes.

At the loch, I found a big rock to sit on and had lunch there on the shore. It was so peaceful and relaxing to put my feet into the water. I walked (mostly limped) all the way back to the hostel. When I got back, I googled my route, and one-way was 6.6 miles. I think that comes to like 13.2 miles walked today! I’m pretty proud of that, especially with my limp!

For dinner, I walked to Iceland, a local grocery store, and found an enormous chicken asparagus pie. It was delicious, but I only ate half and ended up giving it to one of my hostel mates. Tonight I’ll be packing my bag, getting ready to go to my next destination in the morning.

Today I walked south about 6 miles, one way, to Loch Ness.
So much of the walk was on the shoulder of the road. There weren’t any sidewalks once I was out of Inverness.

I had no tripod for my camera, so I had to find a large, flat rock to set my camera.
