Skye - Idrigill Loop:

We ran out of time and never did this one.

Possible start points Orbost, Glendale or anywhere in between. One route also suggests starting at Dunvegan...

Loop = 25.6 miles - alternate off-road routes in orange, not sure if they are viable or not, just saw them on the map!

Ryvoan pass, a nice low level route in the Gorms, well documented online, 46 enjoyable kilometers. Could easily be lengthened

Was a plan b in October when the weather was too gusty to get up high. Considering the strength of the wind 60+mph southerly, this was just the ticket, lots of protection from the trees

contrary to online routes, this has a wee mistake before Glenmore Lodge which led us up a fire road for 1 - 1.5Km, then a little risk taken uncovered a blissfull steep single track line back down to the lodge, worth a few shots itself

Nice route, done part of it in the past but took the shorter way back via the sluggan to Badaguish. Not marked on that map above but comes over where the transmitter is marked in the middle of the screenshot. Also some nice tracks if you go through Rothiemurcus and round the south shore of Loch Morlich to Glemore.
