Matildas Musings – BLiSSful (but Baltic) Loch Earn Loop
Reveille on Sunday morning at 7.30 am. The “old gal” muttered: “You can’t be serious!” But the “old git” was a man on a mission! And despite the gloomy low cloud and drizzle outside at Matildas Rest in Perthshire, the “old gal” was persuaded that it was dry and sunny at today’s venue of Loch Earn.
The route appealed because it is a naturally beautiful area within the Loch Lomond & Trossachs National Park – with a relatively easy 16 mile loop round the loch – which is only about a 40 minute drive by car through Crieff and Comrie. Despite it being so close, it was new territory for Team Matilda.
Now my dynamic duo – and me – always like new areas. But believe it or not, we were recommended to try it by my good tandem friend Bluebird – and her crew John and Jane, who live almost 500 miles away outside Southampton! How did this happen?…
