Road Diary - Day 1 | Heading south

I left Scoraig today a day earlier than planned. The weather had become very stormy and the loch was rough with white topped waves. I got safely across on Bill's larger post boat, the Scoraig Sea Taxi.

I visited friends near Gairloch to say goodbye, then refuelled and bought a gas bottle refill (6kg propane) and a few groceries. Driving out of the town I picked up a hitchhiker, Hannah, from the Chech Republic. We chatted about the freedom of the travelling life, as I drove through Kinlochewe and on toward Torridon before dropping her off in Strathcarron.

After a short stop overlooking loch Carron to eat and decide where to stop for the night I headed on up past the Five Sisters of Glen Shiel to a loch side camping spot by Loch Cluanie. 4WD access by a rough track including a rock strewn ditch. I've been here before so no concerns about getting in and out..

Plans for tomorrow - a thorough tidying/cleaning of the van then drive to Glencoe via Fortwilliam for some supplies.

Thanks for visiting!
