Advice re Jura
by SpamFritter » Tue Jul 02, 2019 12:25 pm
I am thinking of going to Jura in about a weeks time. I will probably bring my mountain bike. I was looking into walking into Ruantallain bothy, but I wondered if the ATV path was bikeable on an MTB? I'm getting differing reports from friends ranging from bog-fest to passable with care. I have a sore shoulder at the moment and putting my kit in panniers is preferable to a pack to be honest.

Assessing the terrain for a bike trip to a new place is common place. You can figure out a lot from satellite view on google maps combined with viewing photos of individual squares along the planned route using geograph dot org dot uk.
When going biking to Jura, consider the Tayvallich ferry or the water taxi from Crinian. The ferry operator and the Craighouse Hotel on Jura will be able to tell you who is offering what and put you in touch. Good luck, take plenty of whisky, it soothes most things.
