Sounds perhaps like Sgùrr a Bhac Chaolais replaced by Buidhe Bheinn. Sgurr an Lochain ?

No worries from me......and I've learned quite a lot about the watershed from searching online and your reports :)


Me too, I immediately ordered the book from Peter Wright: Ribbon of Wildness: Discovering the Watershed of Scotland - now waiting :wink:
Looks like an interesting project :D

I recommend Dave Hewitt's book, "Walking the Watershed" out of print but apparently available on line or from Dave himself. He was the first to map and walk the 'Shed back in the 1980s in one continuous walk . It is a much more personal account of a fantastic acheivement. Peter's book complements Dave's account as it is about the geomorphology, land use and human history, rather than his personal experience of doing the walk in a series of multiday trips.

Apologies again, Rock Hopper, I missed your answer. (in my defence I am suffering from a rotten cold, not covid, leaving me feeling rubbish). Your are as good as correct. I am looking back at Buidhe Bheinn (not on the Watershed) as I continue on to Sgurr a Bhac Chaolais (on the Watershed). A fine walk. Thank-you for your supportive words and over to you.
