Great adventure... Travelled to Fort William on the sleeper train, climbed the mountain. The comraderie of the walkers was great. The sole came off my cheap walking boots but we managed to have marvellous dinner at the Bunkhouse at the end. On Cloud 9 at that point. The Glen Nevis Youth Hostel had been refurbished & hostellers & staff were fab. Then went on to Skye using bus, returning home on the Sleeper from FW again which broke down - Not a lot of sleep was had.
