The Road to The Isles: Rannoch to Corrour

Rannoch to Corrour (13)I have often passed Corrour on the train having just come a big hill and my eyes have been drawn to a lonely ruin which sits about a mile south of the station. Lonely, windswept and desolate, it stands atop a small knoll and faces up to the worst conditions that Rannoch Moor can throw at it. Often too I have thought to myself that I must visit it some day, before getting lost in a book on the journey home and forgetting all about it.

My knee trouble has meant I have had to rule out big hills and when I was looking for a short walk just to get myself out and about Corrour was the first place which sprung to mind. A short bimble along to Loch Ossian perhaps, and a wee ramble along the track this cottage. Then, as usual, I got greedy. Perhaps I could manage a wee walk from Rannoch to Corrour along the Road To The Isles. After all, it’s a track. It’ll be maneagable…

    Hi just got a brand new Alta jacket and, guess what, it leaks into the map pocket. Been in touch with Paramo, they’ve sent me some reproofing stuff.

      Hi John,
      Don’t say I didn’t warn you! They did the same with me, reproofing the jacket and then sending me a few packs of reproofing fluid. You can’t reproof a design defect though. Perhaps you should point out my review and push for a refund? I love the fabric but the pocket is the Achilles heel.

        It’s a shame it’s such a great jacket otherwise and I can’t understand why it’s just that seam. I’ll have to try it in some foul weather and see what happens.

    Perhaps this may be addressed in the Alta III, apparently penciled in for release this year: http://www.outdoorsmagic.com/gear-news/paramos-alta-jacket-updated-for-2015/13931.html
