Default minigaig question

Is it possible to walk the Minigaig from Blair Atholl to Kingussie in one
day, assuming near midsummer amounts of daylight?

I was considering perhaps doing some long linear walks, say from Aviemore to
Linn of Dee, Linn of Dee to Blair Atholl and then Blair Atholl back to
Aviemore (or there abouts).

When undertaking backpacking trips what do people do when it pours with rain
for the whole day? Walk through it or change itinery?

Well, if it's fine there won't be any 'night' - I once did a 600k in
Scotland, near the Summer Solstice, and it never got dark enough to need a
headlight - and that was overcast and raining.

If you choose a night when the moon is close to Full, it'll be light all
night anyway. This would be June 7th. - 10th. next year.

Clean and tidy it up. I once spent the most part of a driech day in
the bothy a A' Chuil after abandoning an attempt on Sgurr nan
Coireachan. When all else fails you can go to sleep very early and get
an early start the next day.

Mind you if you are walking from place to place you have to get on
with the walk at some point and who's to say the weather won't be
worse tomorrow? Decent waterproofs and or clothes that dry quickly
make a lot of difference to enjoying walking in the rain.

Lie there recovering from snow blindness- if you unlucky.

Read a book - if you are lucky.

Oh dear - is the noble art of festering lost?
