The 2013 Challenge, day 3: Lochailort to Glensulaig (3)
Having left Lochailort at 10, I reached Glenfinnan at 2.30, which I reckon to be pretty good going. I bought some Irn Bru and used the facilities; and then, because my Route Card said I would phone in from Glenfinnan Visitor Centre, I phoned Challenge Control. There had been no recurrence of my medical symptoms, so I confirmed that my onward plan was to head for Glensulaig, and that I would not be attempting Gulvain (although it was on my route card for day 4).
Following this call, I got into conversation with a local keeper type person in the visitor centre cafe, who was interested in my route. He confirmed that Glensulaig bothy was open ("At least, it was last month and I cannot see why it shouldn't be this week") so I thanked him for the intelligence and set off again.
