I'm going to try to scout out Duinish in the next couple of weeks (assuming my sore ribs are just briusing). I reckon it's pretty much ideally placed.

My thoughts too but you northerners will have the bog fest approach! I've done it on the fargo so you'll be fine. From memory (if you haven't done this before) the line on the ground takes a slightly more direct line to the river crossing than the dog leg on the map.

Yeah, I was through earlier this year.

Of course, it'll be frozen and perfect for fatbiking in December. Yeah?

Now I've found Duinish on a map I'm favouring that, sure we could fit a tarp over the doorframe if the door is missing.

I'm assuming this is the "gate".

A sheet of heavy gauge plastic sheeting and a stapler might be ideal

When I was there last there was another door to the main building inside the porch and that gate was just to keep sheep out of the porch??
