Lejog day ?. Glasgow to forest 9 miles short of Callander.

38 miles. Found a great spot to camp next to public toilets in the forest, and though it was early we stopped as my uterus decided it hates me (after 5 days in Glasgow I got my period the day before we restarted our trip! Yayy for my menstrual cup though, as would have been even more annoying otherwise) and midgies were already sending out scouting advance parties, and not sure how far we’d have to go after Callander to find another spot.

Turns out Vince’s recumbent bike was born 1/2  mile from my house, and a minor detour from our route! So we stopped and Vince met the mechanic who’d built it and admired the recumbent trikes.

Mostly along canal and river and ex railways today. Very lovely. Looking forward to exploring more after I get back, as its so close to my house.

From aberfoyle we took a scenic detour up along the ncn 7 – rough track in places, and steep uphill, but stunning.

Pretty but sad.
