I am thinking of doing my first Strathcarron start.
I have never been in that area of Scotland and i was wondering if they are usualy decent camp spot along river Meig from allt na Criche to Coire Mhoraigein and from Coire Mhoraigen to Corrievuic ?
According to this blog
There is a good spot after Corrivevuic, but to shorten my day i was looking at an earlier spot.
Otherwise, i was also looking after the option of going through Coire Mhoraigein. I have seen some exemple online of river Meig crossing, what is the most often state in may Crossable/not crossable ?
See you in may
I camped along the river at Pollan Buidhe on one challenge when starting from Torridon. But there are plenty of decent camps along this river on the way to and including near the footbridge at Corrievuic. I didn’t need to cross earlier as you will, it seems to me there was a wire bridge crossing prior to the Pollan Buidhe camp....I’m sure other challengers can help you here....j.
There are many good sites along the River Meig. I too have camped at Pollan Buidhe, whcih is a fine spot, and also further along at NH191505.
I'm not sure if the wire bridge that Julie refers to is still there, but this is how it looked in 2009. CLICK HERE Personally I'd rather wade with a pack!
Then i could have my main route through Coire Mhoraigein and a FWA along Loch Beannacharain.
found a picture of my camp spot at NH191505 looking west. It's a small image but you can just see two other tents on the flat grass further along. As you can see, there's plenty of nice places there.
a nice place to camp :)
