I read the story of Cheryl Strayed, who hiked a huge chunk of the PCT. It's called ’Wild’ really enjoyed the book, and I should imagine walking the PCT is life changing. :)


John, I just watched a fantastic PCT documentary on YouTube by John Amorosano. If you're at all interested I can definitely recommend it.

Re the fairy pools, last time I was in skye (it was a lovely day in the middle of summer, so you might be absolutely fine) it was vey difficult to get parked - cars all over the place. I had to leave it and return early next morning.


Thank you mate. I've just looked this up and it does indeed sound like it could be a bit of a nightmare. Plus it doesn't look like there are many options nearby either. I guess there's a slight advantage of 2pm on a Monday not being the most busy time but I'm not going over to Skye under any illusions. I'm expecting some parking difficulty. Again, the choice of car isn't particularly ideal either!


 :D


If it's too busy we'll probably just move on somewhere else. It's good to be prepared, thanks for the heads up.  O0

For a wet day alternative on Skye, you could visit the Talisker distillery in Carbost. Its on the way to the Cuillins.
 :P


Have you been looking at my notes?

Honestly, I'll be hard pressed to not drop one of the outings to head off to Talisker instead. I've never been to a proper distillery and I do quite enjoy Talisker.


Right up my street mate!

After I visited Yosemite I became fixated on the John Muir Trail, I’ve now discovered the PCT which is becoming something of an obsession.


I read the story of Cheryl Strayed, who hiked a huge chunk of the PCT. It's called ’Wild’ really enjoyed the book, and I should imagine walking the PCT is life changing. :)

Needed something to cheer me up having just heard the excuse we have as our PM addressing the nation blaming everyone but herself  >:(

I saw this today. I had a scroll though and saw a photo of Greggs Hut which I have never seen in the dry. Whenever I've arrived its either been drizzle or raining!

Thanks Zuludog,


We are planning to start stretching the distance out towards the end of this year and back to back walking days too.  ATM we plan our 2 or 3 walks each week and do them regardless of weather. Some walks are only 2-3 miles but that's because we have a small group of walking buddies and we try to be as inclusive as possible at this stage and that's their limit so far - we also work a longer walk in, just the two of us once a week. 


We Nordic Walk too which is great fun and has definitely improved my posture etc..
