No 305 - TGO Challenge 2010 Part 3

Episode Summary

Andy awakes at 4.30am enjoying the full joys of tarp tenting! Shirley on the other hand has a ghoul free night at Gourton Bothy before setting out for Ben Alder Cottage. Once she has negotiated walking by the train line she triple checks her location before heading through Rannock Forest, where she spends a few moments chatting with Roy Cocker, Paul Richards, Barry Turton and Catherine Cane. Meanwhile Andy finally gets to the Fiddlers Rest in Drumnadrochit for yet another beer and a chat with Phil Turner in more detail about his recent hiking trip in Finland and just how different walking in that kind of wilderness can be. Shirley on the other hand discovers a more than warm, 'foody welcome' at the newly renovated Bridge of Gaur Guesthouse. Once replenished she heads out for Ben Alder Cottage and another ghost hunt. However while she was there she talks to a couple of other walkers who reflect on the beauty of the place, even with its sinister history. On the way to Dalwhinnie Bunkhouse she calls into Culra Bothy for a brew and spends a few moments enthusing about the beauty of the walk from Ben Alder. At Dalwhinnie once again, we are back to her favourite subject, food!
