A long one. 34k according to Strava. Mostly down hill fortunately. And no rain !!!
Generally easy walking. Pleasant country side, but little wild life. Parted from Ron at Garva bridge , peter and I to keep to the road, ron to the tracks to the north. And that was the last I saw of them till Newtonmore. Peter strode of ahead leaving nag me in his dust. Eventually got to Laggan and it’s coffee shop. Had a good 45 minute break for soup and a sandwiches, then it was on again.
About 5 k from the end I started feeling roughness under my left foot. Eventually stopped and took of shoes and socks. All seemed good stone wise, but it wasn’t. A blister, on the ball of the foot just behind the toes. Not good. Also not good was being attack by little red fire ants as I sat!
Eventually made it into Newtonmore were I ran into Ron wandering the wrong way down the high street looking for our hotel. Peter had arrived 2 hours earlier!
Beer before shower and dinner.
Ron refused to inspect my feet, so I just left them to air overnight, but my hike may be over. I hate walking on blisters.

You can use your digicam to inspect your feet Mike. Hope the blisters improve.
I could send you the pictures, but they are not edifying
