Kingussie is a lovely small town and I wondered around most of the streets over a couple of hours
I had a large resupply package sent to us in Kingussie and because we didn't know if we were going to hike on beyond this point I set it out on the table and shared it with anyone that needed snacks and food. I didn't notice most people coming and going today, but by evening the box was pretty much empty.
Vicky did get up later in the day and I made her food in the kitchen. I wasn't really sure about the protocol in the bunkhouse kitchen. the refrigerator was full of food and so were the pantries, but there was no one around, certainly not enough people to belong to all this food. I wasn't sure if it was available to eat or if I should get my own... in the end I went across to the Co-Op and bought our own food and made sure to leave the place cleaner than the way I found it.
Were else to go for the evening but the Bar again. it was a Wednesday so we had the place mostly to ourselves during the day and by the time people started to come in, Vicky was tired so we had gone back to our room.
However we did hatch a plan. At this point I think Vicky was sure that her Challenge was over, so we had some decisions to make. She had even called into Challenge Control and spoken to John Manning. We still had reservations in Braemar for Saturday and Sunday and of course reservations in Montrose at the end of the week. We were determined to make these and keep up with our journey across Scotland even if we were not walking. So while sitting in the Bar we decided that for the next 2 days we would go to Aviemore. The medical clinic was there and we remembered that Tweed, a Ceilidh band was played at the Cairngorms Hotel on Thursday nights. So I got online and found the hotel was booked but the Cairgorms Guest House B&B had rooms. Then with some help from the train station attendant I learned I could get a train from Aviemore to Inverness, and then Inverness to Aberdeen and then catch a bus from Aberdeen (the bus and trains are in the same station) to Braemar on Saturday. WEW!
no mileage except around town.
