... into the day we met our first fellow walkers. Another father and son team, (Calum and Martin) doing the Cape Wrath trail. They had crossed the river the day before and assured us it was easy. We marched on. Sure enough the river was duly crossed with no bother. By now though the weather was starting to turn. A gentle but persistent drizzle was falling, getting heavier as we climbed up Loch an Daimh. We continued to make ...

We spurned a couple of possible cross ...

We ended up scrambling up a steep hillside and onto what was the "road" (about 60cm wide) to the village of Sleiteil, up on the moors. We didn't get to the village itself, but the walk was wonderful, on the high windy headland.

And so on, through the wonderfully named hamlets of Tongue and Laid, (all sorts of rude ideas of how we could pose next to the ...
