When I got to Ft. Augustus it was very clear it was a tourist town. I arrived in my hitchhiker vehicle and had him drop me off in the center of town. It was still raining and I was very wet and cold and hungry. I looked around for a suitable lunch spot, took a couple of pictures of the locks and made a decision to have lunch at the Neuk. It looked …

Macclesfield to Fort William
Daily total: 335 miles
A lot of miles to get through today, so a swift start. Elevenses found us at Tebay services near Shap and from there we just hammered on, through Glasgow, past Loch Lomond and right up to Crianlarich before …

This time, I was fortunate to cover few of the most scenic places in Scotland...
- Loch Lomond
- Trossachs (The Highlands)
- Stirling Castle
- Fort William
- Ben Nevis (highest mountain in UK)
... local sights before we head away. If its fine, which is unlikely, we will take the ferry from Mallaig to Armadale on the Isle of Skye and then north, across the bridge........or if its like today with no ferry we have a 3 hour ride back to Fort William and north.

Quite a nice room, courteous staff, good breakfast - a bit too much fat for my taste. Tried haggis for the first time. I got to the breakfast buffet close to the end of service and the eggs were a bit rubbery, my fault for waiting so long. The fruit was watermelon, grapefruit, and plums. Hot buffet included all manner of sausages, ham, bacon, and other meats; including haggis. They had potato 'scones', very like the potato wedges you get at McDonald's. Check out time was 11, gave me time for a little nap.
