Day 3 - Beauly to Fort William
Grey and overcast to begin with, but the sun finally came out and it became warm.
The road to Fort William followed the western shore of Loch Ness and Loch Lochy, where the boys jumped off their bikes to skim stones across the water.
We passed the Caledonian Canal, which links Loch Ness with Loch Linnhe, at Fort Augustus, and by the time we reached Spean Bridge which boasts the Commando memorial, we were all in full sunshine. Ben Nevis, standing above the Lochy Holiday Park campsite, stood clear of cloud.
We recommend the Lochy Holiday Park at Fort William. Good, well-organised facilities.
