Well the last link was sorted this morning. I ordered my train ticket from Crianlarich to Oban. On Thursday I booked my ticket from Montrose to London. I decided to go First Class. I thought £50 was not bad, particularly as it includes free refreshments. Mr Sloman and pals are travelling in the same carriage, so I’m taking ear plugs!
I booked my sleeper from London to Crianlarich a couple of weeks ago. I was going to get a bargain on that too, but it would have meant getting the last two bargain berths so I decided not to deprive someone else. Instead I’m taking the earlier sleeper all the way to Crinalarich. At Crianlarich I have a bit of time to kill, so I might pop into the Crianlarich Hotel for a serious breakfast.
Hotels at the beginning and end have also been booked in Oban and Montrose. I’ve decided that I will also have a bit of hotel comfort in Kinlochleven and Braemar. Until Braemar I will be mainly wild camping, then after a last wild camp above Loch Muick, it will be tamer, with camping at Tarfside and North Water Bridge. My route has been fully vetted and passed fit for purpose, so all I have to do is turn up! I’ll do some more posts on the specifics of my route later.
