Walking & Cycling from Home
What do I mean?A few months ago, I read an article in TGO magazine about a bloke who had walked to the highest point in every 10x10km square in the national grid (with land in). He had also walked all of the connecting routes back to his house, although not all in one go obviously. It set me thinking.
Now, obviously I'm not quite so mad as to try and emulate this guy. NO, I'm not!! BUT, I did sit down and work out how far from home my various ventures on foot, or by bike have got me. One day I might put a map here, Ooh, I have!
Are you ready?
I have walked or cycled all of the links from home to:
- Inversnaid, Loch Lomond and An Caisteal above Glen Falloch
- Glen Lyon near Killin and Glen Kinglass near Bridge of Orchy
- Rannoch Station on the eastern fringe of the moor
- Gallanach & Kerrera south of Oban, and indeed Tiree on the edge of the Atlantic (via Ferry!)
- Appin and the isle of Lismore
- The lead mines in the glen north of Strontian on the A861
- The Glenfinnan Horseshoe, and Gulvain's Summit, north of the A830 near Kinlocheil
- Half way along Loch Arkaig
- Loch Quoich and Cluanie Inn
- Loch Ness at Invermoriston
- Top of Corrieyarrick Pass and Laggan Bridge in Strathspey
- Murlaggan in Glen Spean
- Loch Ciarain above Kinlochleven
