June 2013 – Lochinver Weekend

In keeping with the dry month which June was offering us the weekend spent in and around Lochinver was a very good choice.

The full group and The Old Man (a Fay ‘run-in’).

Members variously undertook seven walks, at least, in the three days available.

  • Early Friday arrivees walked the 6km Glencanisp / River Inver round which is very recommendable.
  • Or, walked round the new interpretation done at Knockan Crag which shows the famous geological thrust faults.
  • Friday evening we were walking round the Culag Wood, which invites more investigation in the future.
  • Saturday morning all mustered to walk from Stoer lighthouse to the Old Man.  As always interesting and windswept.  But dry.
  • Saturday afternoon a simple coffee shop visit along the River Inverkirkaig turned into a good spotting exercise.
  • Early Sunday we had a stroll over Achmelvich beach, the rocks and the machair.
  • Sunday morning we undertook a bigger walk into Glen Allt nan Uamh to see the Bone Caves – and much more.

By Sunday afternoon a full weekend was declared.  Life resumed its normal demands.
