The remote far north on day 6 through Strath Vaich, Glen Calvie and Strath Rusdale, offered up some wildlife. The red deer are abundant up there, but posing for selfies?? The Highland cows are pretty benign beasts too, but we edged our way past this fine specimen’s horns nonetheless.
My next reward, after the gorgeous climb to the head of Strath Rusdale, was to watch an eagle circling right above us until it nonchalantly floated over the hillside without a flap. Safe to say none of these encounters were as scary as the sight of Inverness’ finest out on the lash on the Saturday night – another kind of wild life I guess.
