Lost waterproofs etc on CWT

Lost on 21/04/14 men's black Berghaus waterproof jacket and trousers, large blue fleece and knee brace. All in a light blue bag. Lost between Kinlochewe and Strath na Sealga (via Lochan Fada and Loch an Nid) whilst walking the Cape Wrath Trail. Thankyou.

looks as if papa smurf found your bag (but left it as far as I understand):

"A short distance past the loch [Loch an Nid] I came to a mystery. A large blue plastic bag was lying on the track and contained clothing. I never really looked that closely but was grateful for my own propensity to treble check everything, including after a stop."

I will be walking that way on Monday 19th May, a bit far off, but I will keep an eye out for it.

Thank you for your replies. We did speak to Papa Smurf during our walk after he had seen my bag of clothes.
Mountainstar thank you for your offer to look out for the bag of clothes when you are on your forthcoming walk.

just to confirm it was after Loch an Nid on the way to Strath na Sealga. In part 2 of my CWT post there is a photo of An Teallach with a ruined building in foreground. My memory is that it was just after that on a twisty rocky bit of path. Good luck finding it Matt
