I have been playing around with some new mapping software. More on the software itself at a later date, but it allows some simple to grasp features that show a little of the character of the route.

You can see the lumpy bits at a glance: Not including tops, in order, there’s a Corbett, a Graham, two Munros, a Corbett, five Munros and a Graham.

You can see that there’s quite a bit of work to do prepare your route to the Vetter’s satisfaction but it’s all good fun and ensures that you have a good grasp on what you have in store.
The first real chance of resupply is at Spean Bridge, four days into the walk. From what I can gather from the web, Calvine & Struan don’t have any shops, so the next place for picking up stuff is Braemar, after another four Munros and a Corbett and five days later. There will be quite a bit of food carried this year: Oh deep joy!
Update! WeeWillyWilky has bought his walking boots, so he might just have them broken-in in time; There’s just eight weeks to go now…
