Knoydart Wanderings

Craig and Bill had a quick hit in Knoydart with a Gold Dofe expedition, travelling around the peninsula then to Sourlies, A' Chuill bothy and then out to Glen Finnan.

This is one of Scotland's finest areas of truly outstanding beauty; known as the Rough Bounds, the terrain is tough, the midges tougher and the views to die for.

The candidates were strong and uncomplaining, and finished the route in grand style.  We then gorged ourselves on a MacDonald's...my first for some 15 years I think but well worth the subsequent guilt.

I think the following pictures may answer any questions or doubts you may have about Knoydart's beauty.  Truly stunning and, IMHO, beyond compare for beauty AND solitude.

The journey begins
