Bikerafting in Ullapool.

Post by yourguitarhero »

Was staying up at Ullapool for a few days.
Had my bike, had my packraft and had a look at a map and came up with a plan.

Crossing Loch Broom

Bike and boat packed up, ready to push up the really steep hill

Lovely singletrack in Scoraig

Image
Scoraig jetty - just need to get across to the other side to get picked up by my pal

Image
Bike loaded on to the boat

Made it to the other side! Bit choppy/windy/current-y so was quite in a straight line!

Lots of strong tidal crescents in amongst the islands though plus the Ullapool to Stornaway ferry adding to the excitement. Maybe need to get Stu the sea dog up there :-bd

I like the photo of the jetty and your bike - with a packable raft a view like that has new meaning or possibilities.
