Hills, waves and wheels

Undertaking any trip with multiple objectives, each with their own requirements not least in terms of the kit required can easily become fraught with logistical issues among other things - this one worked out pretty well I thought...
Looking back on the Dutchman's Cap from the first camp on a circumnav. of Coll and Tiree during which we enjoyed some of the best camps possible from a sea kayak, watched in awe as basking sharks swam beneath the boats and passed endless deserted beaches, upon any one of which I could happily have spent a day or more.
Starting out on the ridge of Liathach and some of the airiest scrambling on the Scottish mainland taking in all of the pinnacles and descending via Mullach an Rathain.
The unique mountain-biking of Torridon...
...and some exposed paddling on the north coast with rolling swells, tricky clapotis and long views to the Orkney Islands - a memorable trip, and that's without mention of the wild cat, eagles and a minkie whale. In fact the only thing we didn't see were the midges. More to follow.

That looks completely awesome. I do wish, frequently, that Cornwall was a bit closer to Scotland!

Hi Mike - Likewise, if only Cornwall was closer to Yorkshire...but then Scotland is closer to both than Crete...
Cheers
