Hi Robin,

I take it that you'll be off pretty soon then? I think it is going to be considerably colder than when I was there during August so take some extra layers!

I have been so tired and busy since I got back that I have barely had a chance to look at the photos that I took - I am a bit gutted that I broke my camera whilst at Big Sands and had to rely on my camera phone that takes really poor photos. I broke the screen on the phone the morning that I left Fort William, so no pics for the rest of the return leg. I think I might write a short journal of my trip and post it onto Crazy Guy On A Bike and will let you know when I do.

Absolutely spot on - Sealskinz gloves are excellent and one of those pieces of kit that you never regret buying! Buffs are also a great bit of kit.

Good luck, Robin, and let us know how things turn out - post a link to a different thread on here.

Happy cycling,
