We managed to spend an entire morning lounging around at the bothy, the weather was gorgeous so we say out in the garden with breakfast and cuddles whilst our still dirty laundry hung over the walls. (I think we need something stronger than travel wash to get the marsh land out of my socks!) We … Continue reading Faff Day!
We spent yes day night at the base of our walk over the last 4 Fannichs and had a surprisingly good sleep!
