The 2016 Challenge, day 11: Once More Into the Hills (10)
I reached the lodge at noon, half an hour ahead of schedule, and found a large gathering of Challengers and others enjoying the hospitality on offer. Amongst them was John Dingwall, who said that he is no longer fit enough for the Challenge but, on hearing that I was heading for Cortachy House, asked me to remember him to Bob and Heather. I said that I would. And then, at 12.30 (again, half an hour ahead of schedule) I shouldered my pack and headed out again for the ascent of Carn an Tuirc.
