Knoydart - Adventure to the most remote pub in the UK
Duration - Five Days
Cost - £400
The Knoydart Peninsula is one of my all time favourite places in Scotland. Due mainly to its remote wildness which you can feel vibrating through the rock and soil and echoing across the wide glens and up into the shrouded mountains standing proud above.
It is a haunting place where in the past small settlements thrived and which have now only old ruins to show, Red deer run fast and free across the high ground looking down upon you from their heathery vantage points.
My Trek starts at the Glenfinnan Viaduct (better known as the Harry Potter bridge) and cuts deep into the wild of Knoydart passing through mighty glens, dark forests. You will hike next to pure fast flowing rivers and sit by the empty beaches of loch Nevis, then of course we have 3 mountain passes to negotiate which is a challenge in itself.
Best of all though is after 3 days of hard trekking we get to the beautiful village of Inverie, tucked away from the world, only accessible by boat or the long walk in. There we can congratulate ourselves on a great mission and enjoy a pint (or dram) from the local Pub the Old Forge Inn (most remote in Britain)
