Mallaig and the Hogwarts Express

The gale force winds and torrential rain we had today finally put an end to my journey in the wilderness but what an adventure I had. I explored the coastline all the way from the remote and desolate shores of Loch Nevis to south of Kentra Bay in Ardnamurchan. I even managed time to cross to the Island of Eigg and climb An Sgurr.

Sometimes I travelled alone in my inflatable, other times in my hard shell boat accompanying my brother in his kayak, and even sometimes I went by tour boat when it was too rough to go on my own. Lastly, I walked pasrts when it was too windy for any boat.

However ... regardless of my mode of transport... one thing is certain... I discovered a truelly magical land and found “my precious” in the beautiful barren lands of Moidart.

I hope I can recreate and share some of the sense of adventure I experienced in the following blogs. But first we must catch the Hogwarts Express. The steam train that takes students on a magical journey in the the Harry Potter movies. This Hogwarts Express leaves Fort William and goes to Mallaig where my journey begins.

I hope you catch the train too :-D
