Day Five (17.9 miles.....Cum 89.5)

A travel blog entry by jogling-noyes


... a very rare sighting indeed. The walk round the loch was picturesque and the climb out relatively easy with great views behind us, looking to see how far we have come! Once over the pass, it was just another long slog to the Inn. We are learning- you can't hurry walking! This is a great place.... An Inn as I think they must have been years ago before H&S came to rule our lives! The landlord, Mike, let Rob and me use his own bath. The water is peat brown. A glass of ...

Day Four ( 21.7 miles..... Cum 71.6)

... from some fishermen. We were them stopped by the estate manager, thankfully not to kick us off but to offer us the use of a derelict cottage. However it was at least another three miles on, so with his blessing we have found a pitch up above the loch, not o'er flat but it is out of the worst of the wind. Great view too. Quick pasta supper and Rob's already asleep. However, tomorrow hopefully should be a short (16 mile) day to Crask Inn. There awaits a pint with my name on ...

Not sure if we will have 3G where we are camping tonight so here is a short post. Left Tacher Farm late but in good spirits having set the fire alarm off cooking our bacon! Thereafter been a bit of a slog so far over featureless Flow Country. Both plugged in as a result. Will have to start my Spanish lessons this afternoon as we have about six more miles to go to our campsite. If the weather clears...showing no signs... we may push on. No sooner said ...

Birds of a Feather stick Together!

... bothies beside a bay, located in the collapsed centre of a volcano, the eroded caldera of which is still around 450m high at its maximum height. Needless-to-say, the climb was steep; but must have been the crofters' daily darg as the slopes are covered with 1400 'cleitean' (rock igloos built by the crofters in which to store their produce). Their produce? Fulmar, Puffin and Gannet eggs, feathers and oil (the reduction product of boiled carcasses), and tweed woven by the womenfolk ...

Mo's Blog

A travel blog entry by henryjallum


... strong headwinds, we got our heads down and ***** up and got out of there! Happily for the remainder of the day we travelled on mainly single track roads which had passing places (so we had to keep stopping in these 'passing places' to let vehicles pass us). It's a wee bit frustrating laddie to keep stopping and starting, Henry reminded me 'there no rush Mo' and it was just as well because we were cycling through the most stunning scenery. Scotland is wild, ...
