All this lockdown ruling means the route I take my daily walk has become like Aberdeen on house-to-house collection day...

My wife and I were remarking on that about our local park and canal walks so we have decided that our walks will be around the scheme roads as there are less people on them :)

Just up the road from Arkaig, came upon Highbridge...

Or what's left of it...

I dunno about the one on the right. If that is Thomas Telford's replacement, it is downstream, not upstream. It is also out of commission. :unsure:

John (Colliedog) and I stayed in the Old Pines at Spean Bridge last week, for our assault on Lochs Arkaig and Lochy. The hotel looks towards the Nevis Range, and the 4 big windows of the conservatory dining room each have a logo on them to indicate the left to right order of the 4 biggest peaks you look towards. Very handy. So, here is the stunning view of Ben Nevis from the window...

Here is a panorama of the Nevis range, taken when slightly less dreich (about the clearest we got it)...

Telford's bridge is still in rude heath. It's the one you cross each morning to go to the Spar 👍

Ah, I did wonder. What is the one just downstream of Highbridge, then?

Or wait - is that all the same bridge and I am tricking myself with the angles?

I'm tricking myself with the angles, aren't I? Doh! 🤭
