Meur Tuath to Inverness : Day 3

Yesterday Start Tomorrow

Monday 7th May

29km

650m ascent

Looking down Meur Tuath

Still windy with blustery showers and a lovely walk up the Meur Tuath with loads of mountain hares gambolling about.

Meur Tuath

Plenty of fine peat hags and heather gave a good walk over the tops to well managed grouse moors with the first sighting of Inverness. Trig point on Carn nan Tri-tigearnan

First view of Inverness across the grouse moors

Descending from the hills to the ruins of Dalriach, I followed the track beside the trees to reach the road by an illegal railway crossing.

Dalriach

Once out of the wind the temperature was high enough to remove the Jacket for the walk along what was General Wade's Perth to Inverness road, started in 1728, rebuilt in 1925 and now superseded by the A9, to the River Nairn crossed by a decidedly bouncy Bridge.

Bridge over the River Nairn

The traffic was succesfully dodged on the A9 and I soon came to General Wade's road again, now a good track through the trees. General Wade's road

Track through Daviot Wood

Once clear of Daviot Wood the track passes Castleton Village, a collection of expensive ticky-tacky stuck on the hillside, before descending to Inverness.

Aproaching Inverness

The Bught Camp Site is OK but a bit close to the main road and rather dreary in the rain that had started again. However I was able to wash my smalls and get a fine haggis supper to help replenish the energy store.
