Whilst the other Challengers at Lochailort could enjoy a full breakfast and a leisurely departure, I decided to bin my ticket for the 9.20 train in favour of the 8am school bus.
This enabled me to get to the Camusdarach start point rather earlier than I would have done via the train. I had thought the Morar start would be closer to the station.
It was in fact some way away in the wrong direction, so the 9.20 train would have seen me setting off at around 11am, with an extra 4 km each way to the starting point to boot.
But by the time the bus had dropped me at Camusdarach campsite the rain had stopped and the sun was emerging, so everyone was smiling as I set out from Morar on this year's TGO Challenge walk across Scotland.
