The 2015 Challenge, day 5: Drumnadrochit to Dalbeg (8)
Now, if the farmer had tried telling me where I could and couldn't go, then I should have told him about the Land Reform (Scotland) Act. But he didn't. He asked: and that makes all the difference, as far as I am concerned. I am not into messing with anybody's livelihood, and those ground nesting birds are important to him. So I agreed to go via Easter Aberchalder. This was my FWA in any event - through Conaglen and on the track up the Allt Uisg an-t Sidhein. It was a few kilometres further, but the going would be easier, and I had oodles of time in hand as I had had to take the early morning boat. So I turned around and headed to Easter Aberchalder.
