No 465 - The Skye Trail - Pt2

Episode Summary

After another wet night we had a short window of opportunity to wipe the tent down as best we could before packing it away at Cladach a Ghlinne. The path then continued just a few kilometers to Camasunary, however once again there were a few places which troubled us with just a few inches of soil between the path and fresh air to the cliffs below.

Episode Notes

After another wet night we had a short window of opportunity to wipe the tent down as best we could before packing it away at Cladach a Ghlinne.

The path then continued just a few kilometers to Camasunary, however once again there were a few places which troubled us with just a few inches of soil between the path and fresh air to the cliffs below.

It took maximum concentration to ensure each step was of solid ground before placing weight on it. Maybe it is our age, maybe it was the weather. I’m sure on a warm sunny calm day the impression of the danger is vastly reduced.

It wasn’t long though before the Camasunary Bay opened up before us indicating three huts. The far left I think was the original bothy, the middle a lodge which is well maintained and the right building, the nearest was the new bothy and an excellent building it is too.

As modern facilities as you could wish for, fantastic big bay windows to watch the wild life and the sea view and two very large sleeping bplatforms suitable for 15 people to sleep in comfort.
