I’m heading north tomorrow, so this will be my final post before I begin my Cape Wrath Trail journey.
My parents are taking their caravan up to the Inverness area to visit my brother James, so I’m catching a lift with them. The plan is to drive from Inverness to the Fort William area on Wednesday morning, then maybe drop in at the Clachaig for lunch before I catch the ferry across the loch to Ardgour. I’m intending a short first day of about ten miles so a late start after a pub lunch should do nicely.
I will not be updating this blog during my journey, but I’ll be posting occasional status updates to Twitter @alex_roddie when signal and battery life permits. I expect to be out of signal for multiple days at a time, so if I don’t update for a week or more please don’t call out mountain rescue!
The forecast indicates improving weather after Wednesday or Thursday, so I’m cautiously optimistic – but by no means pinning my hopes on good conditions. I am going fully prepared for foul weather and continuous rain, if that’s what I get. A little sunshine would be nice, though.
I expect to return some time between the 20th of June and the end of the month – an exact date is impossible to pin down – and as always you can expect plenty of photos and a writeup here on this blog when I get back.
See you on the other side, and wish me luck!
