LEJOG Day 16 - Invershin to Tongue

73 km Distance
480 m Ascent
420 m Descent

(1 rating)

An amazing day. After Lairg you're into near-true wilderness; the A-road becomes single-track with passing places, and there is very little traffic and many spectacular views over broad, flat... tundra? Almost-tundra.

The climb - to approximately the currently (possibly?) closed Crask Inn - is imperceptible, and then you have some incredible descents.

Accommodation in the wonderful Tongue SYHA-affiliated hostel, which sells frozen home-made meals.

(Take a stroll west along the causeway for great views of Ben Loyal.)
