Nice resort (I think), really caught my eye as I passed by on day 2
I started my day with a short bit of bonus miles up the paved road I had woke up on, that smooth pave had me zoned out and not watching my GPS track. Once I got back on route I climbed up to the wide open terrain around Loch ma Stac.There was some hike-a-bike across some marshy areas and along the shore line.
Other than this I remember the rest of day 2 terrain as being roads, two track and quite a few short climbs, seems like only one required some pushing. Alan Goldsmith, the event organizer spent a few minutes riding and chatting with me as he passed by. Alan was making up time after a too fast 1st day followed by a long sleep in. Thanks once again Alan for a great route, one of the best multi-day races around, one that should be on everyone’s bucket list.
After some fast food resupply from the Contin Filling Station I got rained/hailed on. I was ‘expecting’ to get rain during the race so I simply suited up and kept going. Had I been a bit more in tune with the local weather I might have realized it was just a passing storm and not anything long lasting. But rather than shelter up I just but my head down and paced on.The entire day was one long slow easy pace. I did some extra miles by initially missing the café at the Oykel Bridge Hotel, needed to turn left after the bridge.
