Great week out, really needed a sanity check, and this was it. Some pics;
The drive up on Sunday morning held stunning views, especially as you climbed up towards Rannoch moor;
Just above Tyndrum
Glencoe ski area
Corran ferry, there and back I just missed it and had to wait for it to return.
I did’nt take any pictures of the drive over to Pollock, on the other side I drove into a valley which was still frosted over, and some of the switch back turns were still iced over.
Finally arrived paddling into a setting sun, last time we’d see it for most of the week, the view back up the Loch
I slept in my little Terra Nova tent the first night, but Rich and I did a recce the next day for a suitable spot to hammock for the rest of the week.
View from my hammock
New shroud was slightly too long for the superfly, but the pu coated nylon was well up for the winds and rains.
Ventilation, these would normally be a lot steeper, but I kept the tarp very low
While the rest of the guys were getting a pounding from the weather I got off relatively lightly, the material was nothing special, just what I had available but it worked quite well.
I also set up a lean to with a Kathmandu tarp, as a day camp, cooking area, that transformed over the week to various configurations, great bit of kit, kept me and most of my kit dry and wind free.
Good trip enjoyed the banter, also enjoyed my time to myself, roll on the next one.
