I’m in Glencoe!

Arrived at the Clachaig yesterday after my epic mini-tour of England, including drinks and laughter at the Fat Cat to say good-bye to people in Norwich, and a lovely evening with Grace in Nottingham. The journey up to the Coe was a bit fraught, with double-booked seats on the train and general faffing at all stages. Got there eventually, though!

Everyone here is very friendly and I have a nice little room in the Staff Bothy. Very like student digs, which makes me feel right at home! There’s a fantastic view over to Aonach Mor and Sgurr nam Fiannaidh, the first peak of the Aonach Eagach ridge. And the rest of the glen is only a short walk away.

Anyway my very first shift starts in just under an hour. Last night was mental at the bar but hopefully it will not be so busy tonight!

I went for a stroll down to the village this morning. Here are some photos I took:

Attitudes and Altitude: a new Sidetracked project, and a journey across the Alps

I'll be spending much of the rest of the summer in the Alps, trekking and a bit of running from Ventimiglia to Zermatt. It's going to be an incredible adventure. I can't wait to begin.
