The Rough Bounds of Knoydart [Friday 6 May - Sunday 15 May 2005]
last updated August 18, 2005
Hi, in May we decided to go trekking in Knoydart, one of the remotest parts of the Scottish Highlands. We left Brussels on Friday 6 May, started the trek on Saturday and ended next Friday, traveled back to Glasgow Saturday 14 and were back home Sunday.
This site is under construction; even the address is temporary - if in the future this address doesn't work anymore, you can always try via the main travel page http://users.skynet.be/bert_saskia/travel
The entire travelogue, as well as the photo album are on line in a basic format - travel along using the menu on the left (put your browser full screen for the pics (F11) - there's more pics in the album than in the text)
A note on the weather - as expected, May turned out to be a month with mainly unsettled Scottish weather, rather wet but also rather sunny, with temperatures well below average. Fortunately, there was one spell of good to splendid high pressure-weather, from the 10th until the 15th. So basically, alright, it would have been better had we left just one day later, especially since that would have made a big change on the first day (the 7th), when the weather was absolutely horrid (8th & especially 9th were ok) - still, not complaining obviously. We only had two days with rain, every day had sunshine, and the unusually low temperatures assured the white tops during the first half of the trip.
