#5 - West Highland Way Day 2

Day two, and we were dropped off back near Drymen, to head through the Garadhiban Forest. Unfortunately, given the lambing season, part of the route was closed which meant we couldn't ascend Conic Hill, and had to follow a diversion to Balmaha. We stopped in Balmaha for lunch, and then followed the Bank of Loch Lomond north.

With barely a couple of miles to go to the youth hostel, the heavens opened, and we were soaked through. We, conveniently took refuge by the log fire in the pub in Rowardennan, before continuing on for the last mile.
