Great photos. Looks like there was at least 300 yards of ridable track as well.

Liking Mr Panda and Radek's differing views on helmet wear.

Mr P wonders when he will see the cuilins on the horizon

Obigatory selfish shots

Zigzag tests how far back he can lean without falling over using the extreme no arms method

Rest now as it won't get any easier

Yes, lets go the opposite way to the way the arrow points, it can't be that bad

After this point my photo enthusiasm waned - huge climb loomed and then 3.5 miles of bog, up to knees on 3 occasions.

Day 2 - The Quiraing

Image
TheKen's rocking his missus' shades - was he going for Bono meets Audrey Hepburn? Only his style consultant can tell

Image
Radek hike-a-biking - yes, there was a lot of this, especially at the start

Image
Mr Panda ponders his line up through the next bend

Image
Looking southwest back towards the start of the Quirang - Cnoc a Mheirlich on the left (I think)

Image
One of these is the Needle, or maybe they all are, they all look pretty jaggy to me

Image
Round the bend, heading north under the ridgeline now

Image
And the start of the (almost rideable by mere mortals concerned with death) singletrack heading down towards Flodigarry

Image
Scrambling down the hill towards Loch Hasco after missing the path

Image

Image

Image
Amped up to be back on the trail, we crank it up a bit for the final section of flowing singletrack...

Image
... going so fast we set the heather alight :wink: whoops :oops: Time to go home, methinks

Oh and the screaming shits I have today reminds me that Zebra Burgers might taste nice but might not be the best thing to buy from a van on the top of a scottish hill.
