Clyde to Cape Wrath – day 7
Another day of mixed, showery weather to start with, which gently improved and by the time I arrived in the beautiful Glen Alladale Estate the sun was shining. The large groups of Highland cattle are no doubt being used to improve the landscape Gleann Mor in it’s lower areas certainly has plenty of trees, including a mature Scots Pine community. A great place to visit and cycle. How about a few Wolves? I’m not sure how the Highland cattle would get on.
Continue heading east, then north towards The Craigs, where a sharp left turn goes north-west to Croick Church on tarmac, before changing to hard packed trail. Follow Strath Cuileannach as far as the junction GR 365979, before heading north-east towards Oykel Bridge Hotel, where I spent the night in the Bothy Rooms which were rather more fancy than any rough shelter that I have used. All of the road and tracks from The Craigs to the junction mentioned previously, form part of the shortest cross-Scotland MTB trail from Ardgay to Ullapool
