... off the land, then there are the long cold winters. The Scottish soldier is celebrated at the museum, and at the Commando Memorial at Spean Bridge outside Fort William; we were very moved by tributes to contemporary Scottish soldiers killed in Iraq and Afghanistan recently. Nigel drove capably as usual, North to Inverness, but the excitement of yesterday's train journey caught up with me ...

Lucy and I got to buy a key ring ...
