The 2015 Challenge, day 10: Braemar to Loch Vrotachan (10)
The rain that night was heavy. It began at 5.45 and did not let up. A light ascent of the Munro would have been no fun at all. Once it started, though, I didn't feel like going outside and setting up my stove to cook. I never cook in my tent, either; so that meant either cold supper or no supper. I could always eat a lunch pack for supper, and then cook a supper for lunch one day; but to be honest, I didn't really feel all that much like eating a heavy meal anyway. I'd had a big cooked breakfast and a not particularly strenuous day. So I just ate a couple of sticks of Edinburgh rock which I'd bought from the sweetie shop in Aviemore, and settled down to sleep.
