Well done on making it to Glasgow...that drive must have been hard!
Another incredible report...you got some stamina to knock all them off after being out the 2 days previous.
What next, where do you go from here...the mind boggles
I think your loving these wild camping expeditions
Thanks for the route info...i shall use it to knock these of in a day, im far too young to have such stamina for a 2 day trek with a wild camp
Well done - what an adventure.

I did a very similar route last August, and it was the only time my tent has been beaten by the wind! It was harsh!

Thanks. I knew a bit about the wall before I went but have looked into it further since returning. Despite having been over in Gairloch and Poolewe many times in the past, I didn't also know that the section of the A832 from Dundonell to Braemore is known as the Destitution Road for similar reasons. I gather there are other road sections similarly named serving as past reminders.Collaciotach wrote:Not surprisingly i'm pleased you mentioned the famine wall ,along with the destitution road's these show the true suffering of the Gaidheal in "An Giorta Mor" in the 1840's .

Rockhopper, you've contributed some fine reports to this site over the last few years, but I think this is undoubtedly your finest hour! Superb stuff!

...and Graeme, I very much remember meeting you on Ben Oss and thinking you were off your rocker ! Think I've changed a fair bit since then

I wonder how could I plot your route into My View Ranger App so I can find the way easier, Your help will be very appreciated. Thank you. Hope to hearing from you soon, not sure how to PM you on this site. Cheer

Hi SA. I'm afraid I don't use view ranger so don't know how it works - I record my route on a garmin etrex. However, if you look below the route at the start of the report to the left you'll see "12-13apr2012t.gpx Open map in GPS Planner". If you click "12-13apr2012t.gpx", it'll download the gpx file to your PC (yes, I still use a desktop). If you click "Open map in GPS Planner", it'll open the track on the WH gps planner. Don't think you can do anything with the latter but the former gives you a gpx file which you may able to upload to view ranger ? Just watch though, I initially followed the track on the north of the allt for about 0.5km from NH204853 before turning back which you wouldn't want to repeat. You'll also see that I had a wee bit of farffing about on the bealach below Beinn Dearg for photos and a camping spot. You may also be able to find a more direct route down from Cona' Mheall as (hopefully) you won't have the snow and ice which I was trying to avoid. Hope you have a great time - cheers

I will follow your route and take 2 nights camping to do it as I'm not a fast walker
