The 2013 Challenge, day 9: Feshie! (2)
In due course I reached the path junction at NN 825900, and my last chance to go high if I wanted by turning right. However, there was no sign of the cloud lifting and this was obviously not going to be a sensible option. I do wish I had taken the time to go and explore the building shown on the map at NN 825892. Is this a bothy, or if not is it something that is usable as an unofficial bothy? Knowing this could come in very handy when planning future routes through these parts. I did think about going to have a look ... but i was concerned about the sheer distance I needed to cover with that diversion to Stronetroper, and adding another couple of kilometres onto the day didn't seem wise. So I turned left, and dropped back out of the cloud in time to see the beautiful little Lochan an t Sluic (pictured).
