I woke to cloudless skies, any other day I would have relished the day ahead. But I knew I had in the region of 20k to reach Aviemore, my planned overnight stop. A hefty dose of Ibuprofen with breakfast and off I hobbled!...
|I passed the mainly demolished farmstead of Corarnstilbeg, where Daffodils were still in full bloom
|My vetter had advised me to walk the path/track from Ballintean to Feshiebridge, it was a beautiful section of my Challenge!
Thank you John Donohue!!
|Splendid views beside the Feshie of the Western Cairngorms.
|I took a break at Feshiebridge. I knew that from here the rest of my day was likely to be on tarmac and hard forest tracks...
|I was able to connect together forest tracks. (Some of which like this one were in use)
|With some really nice paths.
|These brought me to Loch an Eilein, which was like a mirror! Wonderful. I took a few pictures and then sat on a handy seat.....
|...to have a proper look at my ankle. I was surprised to see just how swollen and inflamed it had become during the morning. It was burning hot....I knew I had to seek medical advice:-(
