In a couple of weeks, my wife is going to be doing a two day sign language course, on a Saturday and Sunday.
I had a plan to walk the first leg of the West Highland Way, from Milngavie to Drymen, camp overnight, and get the bus back to Glasgow the next day.
The walk would have taken about 5 hours, there’s a campsite in Dymen, which sounds like it’s really really basic, but which would have been ok for one night. There’s a couple of really nice pubs in Drymen, so food and a few beers with a good book, would have been a relaxing evening before bedding down for the night. The next day would have been simply a case of breaking camp, jumping on a bus back to Glasgow, and home.
Simple you might think, EXCEPT, on a Sunday, only one bus passes through Drymen, en route to Glasgow, and that’s at 7.00pm! Seriously, if I’m up at 7 or 8.00am I’m NOT hanging around a small (albeit extremely picturesque) village for 12 hours, especially when it would only take 5 to walk back.
Ah well, back to the drawing board. I suppose I could go a run on the bike.
