19-Mar-2013 -- A little bit early in the season for me to be in the mountains alone - but this confluence is too good to miss and I am not likely to pass though Harris again for a very long time, It is a straightforward walk and easy navigation - just make sure you have the right clothes and equipment - no one is going to come rescue you.
The OS map shows a path heading through the valley below the confluence - and there is one and it is in surprisingly good condition - with little bridges over culverts and a hard and dry surface - clearly very well constructed. Sadly it peters out before the road and therefore I entirely missed it going up.
It was a bit cold and windy at the confluence, with snow still on the mountain tops - so not much hanging around before pushed on to have a look over the col - amazing - remember this is Britain. In the afternoon I went for a paddle at the local beach.
Interesting highlights - being buzzed by an RAF Tornado Jet Bomber - screaming through the valley below the confluence at ~200ft above the ground - and seeing Barrack Obama on his way to Israel - how else can I explain high altitude jet fighters in finger 5 formation just ahead of a 747 all heading vaguely South-East?
