The most beautiful sunshine in the morning and there was no way I would stay in. Anna wanted to rest her knee so Christian and I went for a 3-5 hours walk up to the Pap of Glencoe (742m). The hostel is right at the bottom of the Pap so the access was easy. Part of the path was a bit of a scramble. But you have an awesome panorama view onto Glencoe, Loch Leven and the surroundings already after ¼ of the way. It’s amazing. After ¾ you tackle the peak from the back so you get a good view onto Kinlochleven (where we’re gonna walk tomorrow on the WHW). On top of the Pap you had a 360° view which was amazing.
We also got the first glimpses onto Ben Nevis that we’re going to climb in 2 days. We stayed up there almost 1,5h and got down within 1,5h. I think that was the highlight so far. Although I must say I prefer the ascent; I find the descent much more difficult – when climbing mountains.
