I set up this blog (Oct 06) to record my training and thoughts in preparing for the 2007 WHW Race – a 95 mile ultra race from Milngavie to Fort William.
I have now run 40 ultras over the past ten years including the whw 6 times and you can read all about them, watch my race videos and lots more by using the tabs at the top of the blog.

Today Katrina and I had a day out walking. We decided to climb Beinn a’Choin. It’s 11miles from Aberfoyle on the road to Inversnaid.
It took us a bit longer to get there as part of the A81 was closed so we had to do a long detour.
Here is our route …
It was very misty when we set off up the hill but as we got nearer the top the mist cleared and we had some great views.
Looking back where we’ve just come from with Loch Katrine in the distance.

Me on the top … the mist came down for a bit but soon cleared again.
On the top of Stob an Fhainne on the way down. Time for a snack!
View towards the power station at Inveruglas.
Ben Lomond with a tiny bit of cloud left on the top.
We really enjoyed our walk. I downloaded the route onto my garmin 205 and it worked really well. I had my map and compass as well but the garmin was a lot easier to use than I thought it would be.
We stopped for some fish and chips in Aberfoyle on the way home and thankfully the A81 was open again so we got home a lot quicker than we went!
