Re: Scottish National trail - Autumn 2020

Congrats on completing the SNT. Great effort, well done. :clap:
Hope your left leg has recovered.
Looked like you got way more rain than when you did the CWT but not as many midges :)
Always forward!

Re: Hi... Advice for the three peaks of Uist

Jim, might be an idea to also post this question on the South Uist/Uibhist a Deas Appreciation Society page on Facebook. The locals in that part of the World should hopefully be able to give you all the info you need. Enjoy your walk :)

Re: last 6 stages of the Cape Wrath Trail

Here's the link to my notes detailing how I went from Ullapool to Cape Wrath. Ullapool - Oykel Bridge - Inchnadamph - Kylestrome - Rhiconich - Blairmore - Cape Wrath.

Water Filters

Any recommendations on good water filters?

I know many think Highland water is pure but I prefer to be safe than sorry.

Thanks.

Alasdair, congrats on completing the National Trail in one go. Doing it in stages as I did certainly sounds easier! I can only agree with what you say, it is an incredible hike. Can't recommend it enough. That said, I'll always appreciate that I was blessed with good weather, that definitely helped....
