The 2014 Challenge, day 5: Down (but not out) to Kinlochleven (9)
I checked in and collected my resupply parcel, and I rang Challenge Control from my room at 3.30 pm to let them know I had arrived safely in Kinlochleven. I then rang the Dalwhinnie bunkhouse, and said that if they had anyone going shopping in Newtonmore or Kingussie (or Perth or Inverness, obviously) between then and my arrival on Friday, I should be most grateful if they could buy me some fresh supplies of Compeeds, painkillers and Kendal Mint Cake. I then enjoyed a bath and removed the Compeed from my left foot, before heading down to explore the bar and the laundry facilities.
