Fort Augustus and Loch Ness.

Tuesday 2nd October began with the group meeting to walk a hilly route through the trees around Fort Augustus. Chris was once again an able guide and the view over Loch Ness was spectacular. Crabbers looking skyward in the woods must be worth a caption. The afternoon was devoted to rowing and sailing. Group members alternated between “Bluejacket” and the sailing boat “Spylgarn” – a Falmouth Bass. The Loch Ness waters were demanding! No sightings of Nessie. Both boats were beached up a Foyers inlet before the group cruised back to Fort Augustus in Ros Crana. Lucy was a real star transporting people between shore and barge in the Pioneer and Tom’s whiskey was very welcome. As one Crabber remarked during the barge journey back to Fort Augustus, “Did we really row that far?”
