The Blackwater hostel here in Kinlo‎chleven is very cosmopolitan but ALL of the people are young.

I’m in the communal kitchen at present. It’s very noisy but good-natured.

The climb up “The Devil’s Staircase” wasn’t bad at all but the downward slope the other side was long, alternately slippery rock and boggy and wet in incessant rain‎.

Dog-tired now, and it’s an early start tomorrow for the long stretch over to Fort William.

Beyond there, I currently have no real route or any idea about how I’m going to do 200 miles plus in an increasing wilderness.

God will provide I’m sure. He has up to now!
