Clyde to Cape Wrath – day 5
A short day, with two climbs, two good ‘eating holes’, good weather and a comfy bed for the night. Following an ancient drove road north out of Fort Augustus, leading to Glen Moriston and onwards to Tomich. The ascent is via the old drove road through boggy woodland, followed by a quick descent along the power lines and an essential stop for a second more substantial breakfast at the Redburn Cafe. Not to be missed, even though it’s a one mile detour along the main A887 from the Isle of Skye. Suitably refreshed for the steep climb, north over to Strathglass, before descending to Tomich Hotel for a couple of pints and on to the Cnoc Hotel, Struy for the night. Finding a washing machine to freshen up my clothing, became a pressing requirement, midway into the journey north.
