The 2016 Challenge, day 1: Oban to Taynuilt (11)
After taking suitable refreshment in the coffee shop my companions headed on,. They were wild camping. I, however, had booked into the Taynuilt hotel. I had a remarkably high number of hotels planned as overnight stops this year; but that was because I had a remarkably large number of Munros and Corbetts planned, too; and I reckoned with all those high level heroics I would need a fair amount of pampering, too. And tomorrow was my first mountain day, with a ridge of two Munros to be attempted. So I wanted a good rest and a good meal. Well, that's how I justified it to myself, anyway!
