The path from is just about bikeable, in a Coulags sort of way. Walked it in June
Don't fancy carrying one round the Bad Step though, that could be tricky......Thinking
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"
Admittedly it's years ago since a mate and I did the Skye Ridge in one go (over 2 days, with bivvy on ridge
) 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.
