WEEK 21-22 – Mallaig to Shiel Bridge



54 miles walked

(total 1,215 miles walked)

What a great way to start walking again after 4 weeks driving down the coast and a couple of weeks at home. I needed the exercise!

I was a little nervous about being in the wilderness for a couple of days but it didn’t turn out that way and anyway I coped. I was fortunate to have reasonable weather as well; hopefully Scotland’s wettest summer is coming to an end?!

As it turned out I really liked being in the wilderness. Rather than worrying about it I felt quite liberated by it. Stunning scenery helps of course…especially when you can see it! I think it also helped psychologically that I was only out for a few days and so just had to make it to Shiel Bridge.  

Loch Hourn
 The best thing though was having my first, really successful wild camp. I was so happy that I managed to light a fire and enjoy being in a beautiful place. Obviously the fact that it wasn’t raining or blowing a gale made a big difference to the experience.  

Such a wonderful week – my favourite so far.

    Luc! You made it to Malaise! But I read no mention of their infamous veggie lasagne made with tinned mixed veg, you had a lucky escape! Very good to have your blogs back with us. Donna xxx
