Great Glen Cycleway – Day 4

4 Nov , 2010  

Day 4 Firstly you may note that the photographic/video accompaniment for today does not follow true to the previous couple of days.  This is largely due to the sheer volume of water falling from the sky onto my head.  Indeed, not only was it monsoon season in Drumnadrochit, to further challenge me a gale force […]
