/ Fisherfield walk
Yes it's (the barn down from the main house) available but you'll definitely need some comfy bedding :-)
Hi Michael, the bothy is not too bad but there is no wooden floor. You just need a decent camping mat and it should be OK. Long distances so I would go without a tent. Cheers, Henning
The Abhainn Srath na Sealaga is ALWAYS "interesting"! I've crossed it many times - summer and winter - and I've never got across without at least water into my boots. Often it's up to my shins and at least once I've slipped and it was over my knees.
I've realised, with rivers like that, that often the soaking one receives is more due to trying to evade it! Better to find a relatively shallow and wide stretch and plunge on in. Rather that than the deeper narrower sections that have the tempting rocks above the water on which, you convince yourself, you can hop boulder to boulder and stay dry...
Here's what the inside of the Carnmore barn is like
WELL FITTING crocks are needed, as some of the terrain is likely o suck the crocks off your feet if they are slack (like mine were) But I agree very light and ideal for this area.
Got some strange looks stripping off the shoes and socks and trying different sizes on in Aldi to avoid the problem, really worth the £1.99.
Even trogged across the bog to the crossing by Larachantivore in them, no problem.
Some great photos there, I'm really getting keen on this now.
I've always had good luck hitching on that road. And I've never gone over my boot tops crossing the rivers. I cross the Abhainn Strath na Sealga at about 063807. There is a big patch of gorse on the south bank; there is another on the north not quite over lapping. The easy crossing point is just between them. It is probably worth searching this point out. http://img260.imageshack.us/img260/8625/image00011oz4.jpg Obviously this only works if the water is reasonably low.
