Wordless Wednesday #11


Wordless Wednesday posts are images from Ardnamurchan and the surrounding regions โ€“ Sunart, Morvern, Ardgour, Moidart and the Rough Bounds. No description is necessary but further details may be provided with the linked full-size image. I will try and ensure they were photographed in the same month, though not necessarily the same year, that they appear online.

      It’s a lovely spot ๐Ÿ™‚

      What I’d like to find is a route from near there to the Glenborrodale to Acharacle track. All attempts so far have been thwarted by deer fences ๐Ÿ™

      However, I’m told that at least one previously locked gate on that track now has a “walkers” gate adjacent … I’ve yet to confirm this, but it came from someone who walked it at Hogmanay. There’s hope yet …

        I know a way through a deer gate across river into Laga estate land then over style at the top of the hill into Ardnamurchan estate…. but itโ€™s a hard boggy slog to track between Loch an and deer park …

        Are you keeping up with the core path/Ardnamurchan estate dispute?

          Hello Lynn

          Apologies for the delay in replying – I got distracted by Storm Ciara.

          I’m aware of the core paths (and the absence of many on Ardnamurchan apart from those around Kilchoan, Achnaha and Acharacle) and I know there’s been a public consultation of some sort. However, I’ve not seen an opportunity to contribute. Is it too late?

          The Acharacle to Glenborrodale path has clearly been in existence for decades and is listed in several published guidebooks for the area. Even as a relative newcomer to the region I know I first walked it 20 years ago. Once the weather picks up (and the tree planting season ends) I’ll get a chance to start exploring the hills a bit more … and may email you for further details of the route you describe.

          I am aware of a gate through the fence on the west of Leac an Tuairneir, but pretty sure I then encountered another slightly further east that stymied my progress.
