worst bit is getting the bike over the suspension bridge
on the way out I shouldered the bike and tramped though the river which was low
culra is a terrific bothy

On recall the wee building at 548787 junction is no longer there....could have been rebuilt? I assume that the upper bridge is still there...it was in March 2008 the last time I was in the area.
Heheh. I went that way on the bike once. It probably took me longer than the other way, and there's still a wobbly bridge to cross (well there was in 2004 anyway)! That path is a bit wetter and softer than the main track. Don't think I'd use it again on the bike, but good for walking.

as I said earlier the most dodgy bit was getting the fully laden bike over the bridge
I'm not the best of cyclists so just took my time and the path down to bothy from where the old pony shed used to be was quite dry
