A Week in the Western Highlands

Last Sunday we returned home after a brilliant week in the Western Highlands.  From our base in Morar we managed a variety of different sorts of walks: a mixture of low level strolls and hillwalks.  The weather was generally good, and mostly better than forecast, although it did rain at some point most days with some heavy showers at times.

We had an excellent time and have plans to return again at some point in the future.  Below is a summary of our walks from the week together with links to the appropriate blog posts:
  • Sunday 16th:  A leisurely day, including an afternoon trip to the spectacular Silver Sands of Morar.
  • Monday 17th:  Today we took a trip over to Inverie on Knoydart for a spot of exploratory ATP walking plus a trip to the Old Forge for lunch of fish and chips.
  • Tuesday 18th:  We went for a late morning ATP walk near Arisaig, followed by a trip to the spectacular Camusdarach Beach with good views of Eigg and Rum.
  • Wednesday 19th:  Our only trip to an island during the week - a fantastic day on Eigg.
  • Thursday 20th:  A Munro bagging day out on my own to do the Corryhully Horseshoe from Glenfinnan.
  • Friday 21st:  Just a short walk from Mallaig today followed by a further trip to the Silver Sands in the afternoon.  Lynsey was out hillwalking today up Gulvain.
  • Saturday 22nd:  Time to head south again today, but not before we took in an ATP walk by Loch Linnhe.
