In response to The Ken's plea, the route deliberations and detail are as follows, if he wants to paste something in message 1

Summary map showing route via Strathmunzie and Hill of Worrying Exposure

Link to mapping, profile and waypoints at Landaranger scale, based on above route

Suggestion that we go via Knockdamph rather than Strath Munzie - NB this route is visible on the mapping above too.

Notes on route from Google Earth flythrough


The mods are slacking - this was to be edited into page 1 i think :wink:

While I was at Bootstock I was chatting to a native of Bonar Bridge, and mentioned about our C2C adventure, and described the route.

He replied "Isn't that the estate where they have reintroduced wolves...?"

So if one of you finds that I've rubbed mince all over your panniers, you'll know what is going on.

I no longer own said panniers, I returned them to tescos and got my hard earned 9 quid back. Customer services said they had never seen a set fail like that :D I even pointed out the design flaws for them :lol:

I was discussing meeting place with Mr P, and Ardgay Station car park seemed a reasonable place.

It's near the coast and its got a car park.

As far as I know - Garry is travelling with Klaus, Rob is travelling with Dave, the Aaron & Radek are a pair and Stephen and I are doing lonesome journies southwards and northwards.

Early start beckons :shock:
