West Highland Way and Ben Nevis


Day 3: Rowardennan to Inverarnan, 13 mls, 1,224 ft
Leaving Rowardennan we found the impressive War Memorial, dedicated to those who lost their lives in World War 2, before continuing along forest path and by the side of the loch. We arrived at the Inversnaid Hotel at about lunch time and took advantage of the picnic tables to eat lunch.  Just before leaving the shores of Loch Lomond we passed the Doune Bothy - glad we weren't staying there. Diverting off the route to Inverarnan our B & B, Rose Cottage, was one of the first buildings we reached. Not overly impressive from the outside we found it to be quite comfortable inside. The 'not to be missed' Drovers Inn was to be our venue for dinner. In the words of the guide book this is 'an eccentric mix of smoke-blackened walls, sagging velvet-covered chairs, moulting stuffed animals with bar staff wearing kilts and t-shirts.!

Looks like another sunny day in store as we leave Rowardennan

Hey! Wait for me!


The picnic tables at Inversnaid provide the perfect lunch spot (and toilets at the adjacent hotel)

Having left the forests behind there are more views over the loch
