Expedition to the Falls of Glomach

Duncan Macpherson writes in his books of trips to the Falls of Glomach, which he did nearly every summer. The walk to Glomach would take most of the day, with river and loch to cross, and a long track 'winding tortuously round the hillside and dipping down again', as he describes in his book, Gateway to Skye. He mentions one visit when in the company of a group of young women, dressed in bathing costumes. The cool river water most certainly provided a welcome distraction after a long day on the hill, with possible discussion of the blister causing boots being discarded permanently
