Re: Options for camping or wild camping near Glen Sherup!?

Interesting -- RE the reservoir dam, I walked that route recently and didn't see a signed posted site for it? It's hard as I am not that experienced so may have missed an obvious site! When I did the circular , just before crossing the top of the dam on the west side - that looked pretty flat to me...

Re: Seana Bhraigh from Oykel Bridge

The cycling is easy as far as the Lodge, and there's a wonderful atmosphere in the glen which you don't get in a car.
