    ... both had Cullen skink tonight as our first course. Translated it is a delicious smoked haddock and potato soup. It helps to have people around who are able to interpret. Lots of fresh fish available on the dinner choices and always porridge and kippers as options for breakfast. Sheil had porridge for breakfast today. I declined! Again - and I know I am repeating myself - I can't get over how much fun our group members are. We are sharing a lot of laughs. ...

    ... site of the massacre in 1692 before arriving in Oban our destination for the night. As soon as we were booked in we set off to the top of the town to view the harbour from McCraig's Tower, absolutely stunning. We had a beautiful Italian dinner on the pier before we headed back up the hill to bed, early start in the ...

    ... wild camp in Glen Etive and see some of the sights around Fort William, including the Harry Potter film set in Glenfinnan.

Also, the weather, for most of the time, was just brilliant too. Thank you Scottish weather! But the highlight ...

    ... finding that the decent was actually too steep to make use of all that painful climbing.  The climb itself was pure mind over matter stuff...every time I do it I remember Iain telling me about the guy in the Tour D'France who managed to take all the enamel off his teeth by gritting them so much.   We waited in Drumnadrochit for the others to catch up.  This wasn't so bad as the café had free internet so we were able to get ...

    ... Inveroman. Arrived at Inverornan really quickly, only took about an hour (now 9:30). If we can keep this up then today shouldn't be too bad. Only thing in Inveroman is the pub/B&B on the side of the road. Very cute place. Saw some of the guys who were drinking heavily last night leaving - they hiked here last night in the dark and set up camp! Eli and I had to take about photos, on about ten different cameras, of some other people who had stayed in the pub and who were just ...
