A tale of wilderness, weather and venison

September’s walk report of the month has been awarded to a realistic write up of an epic three day trip to Knoydart. Here Alex, David and Stefan battled Storm Betty, bogs, busy bothies, chest high bracken and a lot of rain, but somehow managed to totally enjoy themselves. Alexdw win’s a £100 Highlander prize voucher, read his walk report and maybe plan your own adventure to these amazing mountains in Knoydart: Glenfinnan – Inverie via Sgurr na Ciche Munros.

The £50 runner up pize went to old danesian for Cùl Mòr … or frustratingly less – a great account with even better photos of a night out on one of Assynt’s finest peaks.
