Whit Week 2011 – Part 2: Fort William & Oban – 29/30 May

The poor weather we endured on the Pennine Way wasn’t confined to England. Lochaber too was swept by heavy showers and strong winds so that we could do little on the Sunday. On Monday we decided to have the morning in Oban, in the hope the weather might improve.

WW02-1A “mournful” Class 37 at Fort William station seemed to sum up the weather

WW02-3Lock below the one draining overflows as the levels equalise

WW02-4“Walking” into the next lock

WW02-5Finally down and out of Neptune’s Staircase

WW02-9Perhaps the only way to enjoy a blustery morning
