Is that where he mentions Nig-nogs? Dearie me. I met Sir Jimmy Of Saville at a mountaineering thing in Fort Bill with Hamish MacInness, Yvonne Chuinard and Jimmy Marshall. Seemed like a nice bloke to me.Lets not get into on-line bitching and calling people things when they can't reply. 'Specially not after I've had to apologise to the guide so badly slated on this website! I'm sure Hamish Macinness built that house, he didn't just buy it.

also meant to add that I agree with you
not really a good thing to slag off or offend people you don't know :?

Mountainstar, was it you who was telling me you used to see Jimmy Saville in the Clachaig? I know I had a conversation about him and I think it was with you and MC :think:

Walk aboot, yes it probably was me mentioning I once saw him in the Clachaig, When I pass his house I always look for his VW camper van to see if he's at home, not seen it there for a long time.
Donnyw, That bridge you posted is pretty well no longer crossable, still standing, but lots of the wooden cross pieces missing, but there is a new bridge down river a few hundred meters away.

Great report mountainstar; done a couple of long distance paths but never thought of making my own route up for a full weeks walking. After looking at this, it is definitely something i will have to do in the future. I notice your tent was a Terra Nova, which one did you use? Looks a bigger than my TN Solar 2

Terra Nova Voyager, probably a bit big for one person, but I wanted a tent that would meet any weather, not really knowing what weather i might get, and with another trip later on the same holiday to S.Uist to follow, knowing it could get a bit windy there (although it didn't) I chose this over my Mountain Equiptment AR ultralight 2 which isn't so sturdy.
