#1: The Confluence

(visited by David Williams)

07-May-2017 -- What a difference 11 years makes. I've called off visits to this confluence twice - because of unsuitable weather. I'm glad I waited as I got a lovely sunny day and someone has built a road most of the way to the confluence. Its for a new hydro-electric scheme - with a dam up near the tree-line and a generator house close to the public car-park. There remains just a few hundred metres of path though woodland and then the, unchanged, challenging final ascent.

I missed a major off-road motorcycle event by 3 days so had the entire trip to myself - apart from a couple of hundred red deer.

If you do visit this confluence please also make sure you drive along the shore of Lock Arkaig.

  Notes
This CP can be and is dangerous especially if you are on your own or it is less than perfect weather. Gordon Spence visited this point in August and in the space of 30 minutes on the hillside it went from sun, to rain, to sun, to rain, and back to sun again. If later in the year, it can white out in minutes.
