Target 20 miles per day: a lot! Looking at the map this project is scary, high mountains and remote, as is often said. I’ve a lot to do to get fit and survive stoma reversal. Maybe Hourn is enough for first attempt. Distances are thumb estimates, revised when Harvey map and Romer arrive. Exciting though and reinforces my determination.
Got myself to Kinlochourn, including £60 ferry for last hour. Well worth it, there’s. no point in heroics. Range firing 8 to 20 May.
