All the best,

I met 3 other people whilst doing the walk who also had the same Asolo boots, and 2 out of 3 of them also found that they leaked.

have done this final leg from Kinlochbervie to Cape Wrath myself last year and have an unfinished report sitting in my drafts folder which I never got around to finishing. I had a beautiful sunny day for it but it was hard going as you say with the amount of ups and downs and in and outs...wonderful birdlife and great views but that lighthouse never seemed to want to get closer...
really enjoyable to read...

I enjoyed reading and seeing the images of your long walk.....I especially appreciated the Bothy images. Was it difficult, at times, to resist heading up towards the high tops? However, in a way, this would have taken something away from the journey in that parts of the traverse may have been missed out. After all, walking is more than just shinning up the higher hills.....the solo journey carrying all the kit in the rucksack is a tonic! I wouldn't be suprised if others don't follow your example.

I hope this account gives others the idea about doing it....Perhaps a good New years resolution?
Merry Christmas to you all, Alan

Half a year after when I was at Sandwood Bay I came accross another couple who also turned back because of the flags and I kind of believe that they are not taken down at all because of the remoteness of them.
I would like to know if there was anyone who did not come accross them who walked the way...?
Please let me know.
Otherwise one question I do have regarding maps...I found out that you need 19 maps in total to do the CWT but I also read that some could be downloaded from the internet as uyou only need them for a few miles. Would you be able to let me know which ones I defenetely need???? Many thanks in advance
