Report

The CWT isn't a waymarked route and it has some diversions/alternatives. Wanting to lay down a benchmark FKT and make it as transparent as possible for future efforts, we decided to  follow the Cicerone guidebook (2017 edition) route, which generally takes the longer options.

The trip is documented mainly in 5 daily videos.

The day before our run started, we laid five caches of food and torch batteries, at the following places:

Sheil Bridge

Strathcarron

Kinlochewe

Inverlael

Inchnadamph
