there's lots of paths here, including the forest tracks. would love to come up with a route round to loch coruisk to complete a loop right round the black cuillins.. it's defo there reckon it would require a carry up an easy scramble over a bealach http://binged.it/TzTgUn


The path from Coruisk over to Glen Sligachan is just about bikeable, in a Coulags sort of way. Walked it in June :D

Don't fancy carrying one round the Bad Step though, that could be tricky......Thinking :wink:

EDIT: know someone with a boat at Torrin who may float us in for a small fee, from Elgol possibly :idea:

Am reliably informed the coast path from Elgol to Camusunary is not bikeable by the sane.

That looks ok, not too high. however the section at 5.30 might put me off a little.

Aviemore or somewhere Cairngorms was my choice. Not too epic for those who are not mad cap backwoods explorers.
Wherever it is it needs to be 90% rideable, pushing/carrying a bike for several miles will illicit lots of greeting and not just from me :oops:

that's the path I want to get to - "Coruisk over to Glen Sligachan"

the path shown from glenbrittle to coir a ghrunnda (assess to sgurr dubh mor & sgurr nan eag) is ridable. at a huge push you could carry up to the coire which is steep valley of huge boulders, then climb onto the bealach, but would only do this if I was sure you can descend the coire an Garbh to courisk.. probably best to get the walking boots and do a proper reconnaissance

mikee said "not bikeable by the sane."

Can I just say "you're mental" :lol:

Admittedly it's years ago since a mate and I did the Skye Ridge in one go (over 2 days, with bivvy on ridge :oops:) but there's no way I'd like to take a bike along path to Sgurr nan Eag. We walked further to foot of scree slopes rising to Gars-bheinn at 895m, the Bealach a Garbh-Coire must be around same height or slightly lower, I was ready for topping myself with just a rucksac on my back climbing up to Gars-bheinn.
On the other hand if you have got the determination to climb over the bealach with a bike, finding your way down An Garbh-Coire should be well within your capabilities. 8)
