    The last few months I have been getting out on the hills, no overnight camps so far due to circumstances.

    Rob Roy's cave Loch Lomond

    Few weeks back I went in search of my third Rob Roy's cave. This turned out to be the easiest to find due to it being on the West Highland Way and having a sign post showing the way. On the way there I took a detour up into the hills and found a nice wee sheltered area that would make an...
