Today I was so glad not to be chasing winter conditions for clients! I have wanted to do the route around and then over part of Beinn Damh for a wee while. I started from the Balgy river and headed up to and along Loch Damh for 10km. From there it was a steady climb up to the bealach on a track which was mostly rideable. The bealach is at about 450m so the descent back down to Torridon was pretty cool. No water bars, the track had hardly any puddles and you could always see most of what was coming next! The Met Office forecast was pretty accurate for me as they suggested that between 1200 and 1500 there would be sunny spells – they were right. I hit the road just as the squalls really started to come in.
A great route which was rideable most of the time with no carrying like other routes here. Not that there is anything wrong with carrying it is just more fun to ‘enjoy’ when your mates are there to share it too. View my route on TrailZilla here.
