This expedition to Knoydart was to the south of the peninsula, where we camped on the shore of Loch Nevis, not far from Camusrory. We travelled in from Mallaig courtesy Bruce Watt Ferries, who made a short detour from their normal Mallaig-Tarbet-Inverie run to accommodate us and uplifted us at the end of our stay. The trip was notable for the unseasonably cold weather, it remaining freezing throughout our second day. Nevertheless, we were able to explore around Carnoch and Sourlies, and on the final day ascended the Corbett, Beinn Bhuidhe.
