No 466 - The Skye Trail - Pt3

6/15/2018
More
So on the Bank Holiday Monday we decided to crack on from Portree after a good days rest and hit the trail heading for The Storr via Ben Dearg. Although I had done some research on the route before we left, every piece I read spoke of talking the alternative coastal route which on reflection would have been (a) a walk with a view and (b) so much nicer and quicker underfoot.

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.

The beginning of May 2018 saw Rose and I start the tough but rewarding Skye Trail starting in the south at Broadford and heading to the most northerly point at Rubha Hunish. The reason we chose the start there was mainly due to transport limitations, as the bus from Glasgow gets into Broadford at 9pm after a long days travel (6hr bus journey) and to get the to northernly start, would have taken another 24 hours. So in an effort to get started without further delay we chose Broadford.

In this podcast (Part 1 of 4) Andy and I visit the 2018 Photography Show at the NEC with two objectives in mind. I had arranged to meet all the major brands to try and narrow from each of them 3 cameras (good, better, best) which would be ideal for the outdoors enthusiast. I’m not talking action cams, or heavy DSLR’s, but those in between which offer remote charging via USB, good weather resistance, and features that appeal.
