In a couple of weeks 4 of us are headng up to Fort William for a weeks off-road adventuring in the Scottish Highlands. My first visit so very excited about seeing some real wilderness (I'm informed that there isn't a tea shop at the top of every hill a la Leith Hill - can't believe this is true *gasp*)
So - we've been getting the maps out and have looked longingly at possible routes and would love to talk to someone who's got some local knowledge.
We're travelling with trailers so miles and miles of really technical trails is NOT what we're after. We are happy to push bikes for short sections in order to avoid long road sections and get wonderful views and to link up two valleys.
We'll have tents and plan on using a mixture of bothies, camp sites and youth hostels if we get too wet and fed up.
If you can help then either post here (or better still) email me direct. Happy to donate to a charity of your choice for your time.
