Default Appelcross

Now then

I had a great little excursion to Applecross last month and have done a write-up of my trip. I've not mentioned the exact name, let's keep it that way :-)

Nice one Mantog.
I've got the camping gear and I've got the fishing gear, never got to putting the two together for a trip.

Excellent post Mantog. This small island of ours harbours some achingly beautiful wilderness. Have done York to Scourie many times - the drive is an endeavour in itself!

Nice tale Mantog. It's been 30 years since I was in that corrie but I recognized it instantly from your pics and words. A long hard slog for a few sprats, but size is not everything. There are some good fish in the top loch, had a few over 3 lb there but as I said that was over 30 years ago.
