RE: Board Question #27749
Take a weekend and go stay at Rowardennan Youth Hostel on Loch Lomand at the base of Ben Lomond. It is magical to watch the mist on the lake on a quiet morning, and you will forever have tears in your eyes as you hear "You take the high road, and I'll take the low road, and I'll be in Scotland before thee. For me and my true love will never meet again on the bonnie bonnie banks of Loch Lomand".
The walk to the hostel from Balmaha is gorgeous and fairly easy if you only have a backpack. It is about eight miles and takes about three hours. On my way out it was pouring rain and it still was a lovely walk.
