I wanted a challenge for my birthday and with limited days available, Scotland became the favourite destination. Then again, despite how many days we have, Scotland is always the favourite destination for adventure!
For a few years I’ve loved combining my lifelong passion of walking in the hills, with my relatively new found passion of mountain biking. After plenty of research we settled on Kinlochleven and the stunning Mamores. Our aim were the two Munroe’s Na Gruagaichean and Binnein Mor, with a nights bivi at some point on the way.
Making our base Kinlochleven, we had 3 days to play with so were lucky enough to be able to choose the best weather window. We set off from the town ladened with bivi gear and a fair amount of tuna and eggs. My ridiculously restricted diet being still in force!
