Here, I followed B&H’s advice  to seek out Loch an Iasaich and was soon glad I had made the diversion. I had lunch among these rocks, wondering where the path would take me next. The Cape Wrath trail is considered one of the most spectacular and challenging walks in the UK. And throughout this section of the walk, the stoney round top of Ben Aden looks down on you, like the All-Seeing Eye of Sauron. You can’t say that about the Lake District. Making coffee in a midge-free breeze also gave me the pleasure of soaking up one of the walk’s greatest backwards views: the wide, glacial landscape that includes the terrain back to the mountains enclosing Loch an Nid. As you do  you can clearly see the mouth of the pass ahead. Approximately 230 miles in length, most people take 2-3 weeks to backpack the trip. B&H recommend you skirt around the edge of the woodland en route to the pass but, having already missed that path at Upper Glendessarry, I decided to go through the forest on wide tracks and paths which ultimately join up with the ‘official’ path. However, he seems to have initially followed the route favoured by author and TGO editor-at-large Cameron McNeish, who suggests the Caledonian Canal as a starter rather than the scenic left-up-left-up-up-right approach of  Brooke and Hinchcliffe. Auf weiten Strecken ist man fernab der Zivilisation und auch vernünftige Wege machen sich teilweise rar. Speaking to some Scottish walkers I met later, it is not unknown for walkers to mistakenly follow the path to Loch Morar. Ultrapacking on the Cape Wrath Trail . The route is unmarked and there is no official line. But there is a bunkhouse close by, at the glen’s other hamlet, Camas-luinie, which is where I now headed as I plodded north west up the road and recrossed the river through a field of Highland Cattle to the farm at Coille-righ. Im Spätsommer soll es losgehen – aber leider macht mir der Job zunächst einen Strich durch die Rechnung. Owners of hotels, B&Bs, bunk houses, hostels and campsites on and near the trail route are also mostly aware of its existence, which also contributes to the sense that the CWT is set to become a permanent part of the long-distance walking itinerary. Day Three: Strathan to Sourlies bothy at Loch Nevis –  nine miles (or thereabouts). Haldane said that the glen was probably used by drovers moving their cattle from Skye in ancient times. From here you are on an undemanding descent to the formal gardens at Attadale at the north end of Loch Carron. However, it was flattish on the top and so I wandered around a bit until I saw what seemed to be a winding path fit for the name. Besonders an einer in Hanglage geht der Adrenalinspiegel ganz nach oben. A little below here the path heads steeply down to Glen Shiel and the main road to Shiel Bridge.

In fact, although I had been planning to camp beside Loch an Nid, the narrow loch on the other side of the pass, the even greater sense of isolation caused by the mountains on both sides of it, and the rain storm that blew in, made me want to keep walking. But if this sign name is a mistake by the society, it wouldn’t be the first since there’s a really confusing one near Kinlochewe which gets the names of two passes mixed up. At this point I did wonder if I could I just follow the glen north all the way to the loch. Almost everybody I met in this part of Scotland after this more than made up for this bloke’s evident dislike of walkers/the English/human beings under 65. But three hours later I was at the end, it was pouring down – the only big soaking of the entire walk – and I was knocking on the door of the B&B at the tea rooms. Yet the outdoor shop bloke said he’d walked north east up the Caledonian Canal before turning left and north somewhere or other. And there are supplies available at Gerry’s bunkhouse, a few miles up the road from Strathcarron, which is where I headed after a night at the Strathcarron Hotel – or at least in a field over the road, which is where they let me camp when I found out all the rooms were full.

Als Ziel hatten wir uns den Norden Schottlands ausgesucht: Den Cape Wrath Trail. Then I thought: if I could follow the river to Lochan nam Breac, further up the glen, I could pick up the ‘defined’ path from there without all the hassle of having to go up the side of the glen. Cape Wrath Trail is a hiking route that runs through the Scottish Highlands and along the west coast of Scotland. “Well that was where he used to live and had a whisky distillery.” His aunt’s book is full of stories about local people and the stories behind the place names, places and hill tracks that people used to walk to get about before the age of the car. But another reason for writing this is the sense that some strange stuff is being talked about the CWT. Yes, the people at the B&B had a room. Ich kratze mein restliches Bargeld zusammen. The CWT can certainly be a rough, tough walk – probably the toughest in Britain – but it needn’t be off-limits to all but a band of ‘been there, done that’ walking elite. This track cuts steeply upwards through the forest north of the A890 and marks the route of an old drove road between Torridon and Craig – which is where Gerry’s Hostel stands.

Here, beside Loch Meallan an Fhudair, Kinlochewe wasn’t that far away on the map, but the combination of mountain peaks, rough trackless terrain and grey cloud and water at that loch made it seem very distant. That’s Loch Arkaig down there. At this point the path exits sharply from the gorge and you descend to sea level via a hillside path. The Cape Wrath Ultra® is Scotland’s finest multi-stage ultra running event. To me, the reputation can’t be due to the length of the daily sections;  many long-distance paths have much greater daily mileages. You can follow the boundary fence around it if you want, but there is now a clear, if rough and semi-bulldozed track through the middle of it that comes out just south of Kinlochewe. “When I see flowers and plants I just kick them out of the way.” At Corrie Hallie, you can continue over the hill to Ullapool.

I stayed at the Kinlochewe Hotel (the attached bunkhouse was full) and filled up with supplies at the big village store and Post Office. Then I thought: I can’t get any further up the glen to the lochan because there’s a cliff in the way, so this is surely the right place to ascend. No path,” remark B&H. The trail leads you through uninhabited Highland wilderness. If you're planning to make the trek, here's what you have to look forward to. Since I’d walked a few miles of B&H’s recommended route north of Strathcarron the day before, after setting up the tent at the hotel, I didn’t feel too guilty about missing the tiring trudge up the road. It is approximately 200 miles in length and is considered to be one of the most challenging long distance walks in the UK. Immer wieder ist auch der Leuchtturm zu sehen.

This is basically a big scenic detour and I’d already identified a different and more direct route into Glen Elchaig on the map. Of all the glens I was travelling through Glen Elchaig was the one that most interested me – in part because of its ‘secluded’ reputation, in part because of its noble beauty and in part because it remains populated, but only barely so. Blog. A burly bloke in a pony tail ran past and spat at the ground near my feet. I could imagine hunter-gatherer people living down there in ancient times. It was a peculiarity of British weather systems  that while the rest of Britain was suffering heavy rain and floods, the North West Highlands were in a prolonged dry period that had left many springs and mountain burns completely dry and reduced rivers to shallow trickles. Die Länge der Strecke und der schwierige Untergrund, die Navigation und die Abgeschiedenheit werden für mich auf jeden Fall eine Herausforderung. I was sad to leave Camas-luinie and would have gladly stayed a few days in quiet Glen Elchaig, which is a world way in feeling from busy Loch Duich, with its tourist traffic passing to and from Skye, just over the other side of the hill.

Er ist kein offizieller Wanderweg und nicht ausgeschildert. Dafür hat man streckenweise die Wahl zwischen verschiedenen Varianten. Klar laufe ich noch bis zum Leuchtturm. And this is perhaps because while there is a signposted hill track heading north east from Strathan, it takes you to Loch Quoich – while, towards the west, the path heads straight to Loch Nevis via some lovely little lochans – and there’s a popular little bothy to stay in on the beach a few miles beyond it too. A steep walk/scramble got me to the top and, lo, I soon saw a path and the line of iron fence posts that B&H say take you over the pass. Dafür gibt es abends ein trockenes Dach über dem Kopf.

I’m glad I did because the woodland walking beside and over numerous burns, some slow moving, some roaring with white water, was rewarding. B&H don’t mention this sign. Although I still think it’s difficult to tell from OS where the lochan is in relation to the top of the pass, the water creeps into view at the far right-hand end of the pass as you come over the top. The alternative was a walk along a busy main road, and finishing the journey by train over the Glenfinnan Viaduct seemed the more interesting option. Bezahlen ist in Schottland weitestgehend bargeldlos möglich, fernab von der Zivilisation gibt es aber doch ein paar Ausnahmen. An Ausrüstung ist schon vieles da. And I now fully assuaged my walker’s guilt by doing the first part of B&H’s official route north from Achnashellach Station. I thought I’d have a quick break there. I brief, I wondered later just where this bloke had walked. I wish now I’d camped somewhere up Glen Dessarry because my pitch at Strathan soon became midge hell. Lochan a Mhaim: a little bit of heaven on earth. It’s tiring and the terrain certainly slowed down my usual quick marching speed. In Schottland gilt das Jedermannsrecht und abends vor einer Kulisse wie am Lochan Fada das Lager aufzuschlagen und die Highlands (fast) für mich allein zu haben, ist ein unglaubliches Gefühl.

Located in Scotland, it runs from Fort William, through the Highlands and Western Scotland, to the lighthouse at Cape Wrath, the northwestern-most point of Scotland. Having walked half of this long-distance trail in north west Scotland in 2012, and the second half in 2013 (the link to the second half is at the top of this page) it seemed to me that some prospective walkers would benefit from help with route-finding along a trail that seems bound to grow in popularity in coming years. The lower path continues downhill and leads to Lochan Torr a Choit, which you can see in the middle distance. They mean it splits, so you keep to the lower one near the river. “But it isn’t, the real wilderness is the land around here, it’s just that there’s nothing specific to attract people there.”.

However, you surely won’t have forgotten that somewhere up ahead B&H will ask you to exit the glen in a dramatic and tiring fashion. As you plod from the loch the jaws of the pass seem like portals to another world and any feelings of isolation you have up here have will probably be magnified. Sheil Bridge to Strathcarron. Due to its extremely remote nature, two nights of this trek will be spent wild camping.
