I'm heading up the Sutherland at the end of the month, to walk from Forsinard to Kearvaig Bay near Cape Wrath.
I have plenty of experience with backpacking on the west coast and Cairngorms, but have never before visited the flow country in the east of Sutherland. I'm expecting there to be plenty of water (!) but am unsure about finding drinking water in a flat, boggy landscape. Are burns usually drinkable there? I normally treat water with chlorine tabs and then clarifying tabs. Should I be investing in a filter for this trip?
I'd appreciate any comments on this. I don't particularly want to re-start a religious war on the general merits of treating vs not treating water and/or filters vs chemicals - I'm specifically interested what I'll find on the ground Sutherland!
Any help will be apprecited.
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
