Waking up knowing that I’m half way there and one of the biggest challenges on this venture has been completed, gives me a great boost of energy and confidence. I remember feeling the same way when I was at Shap Fells, past the half way point of last year’s challenge.

Day 8: Balmacara - Dunvegan

Distance 59 miles / Elevation 1010 meters

Skye Bridge

Loch Alsh

Blackhill Waterfall with Graham Marsco behind.

The mighty Black Cuillin.


If I knew that Danny Macaskill would be here in a few weeks time, I would have stuck around for further inspiration! Check Danny’s awesome film, recently made:

Having pushed on it was time to pitch up and now taking a quick overnight nap at Dunvegan. Tomorrow I'll make my way to the south-west corner of Skye and see if I can catch a ferry to Mallaig.
