So it was onto the main walk of the day Inverie to Kinloch Hourn. I started up a nice wide track out of Inverie through a forest this soon ends and I dropped down into a glen on the way to Loch an Dubh-Lochain, the weather and scenery is superb and I thought the best way to get this across is to flood this entry with my pictures.
The path followed the Inverie river until it reached
the loch, I had met 17 people along the path but as it
started to climb I was the last person standing and boy was it a climb! topping out at 1426ft, this I think
is the biggest hill I have had to climb on the whole of
my walk. The view from the top down into Barrisdale was just stunning I stood for a while to catch my breath and to take in the scenery. All too
soon I was descending down the track into Barrisdale this was quite a tricky decent but well worth it Once I was at the bottom of the hill I passed by the Bothy at Barrisdale, I popped in but there was no one at home!
The next 6 miles were amongst the worst/difficult
I have had to travel along for quite a while, it wasn't
so much the mud but the path was very rocky and went up and down and up and down. It took me 4 hours to travel the 6 miles to Kinloch Hourn and I couldn't wait to see the tarmac as I entered the village! Really I cant stress how hard this section of coast is to walk. Good Luck!
