... at the first sitting, all planning their days travel. The wifi was good as was the advice from our landlady. We packed and returned to pay. Harris came out into the common room to see us off. He dropped a piece of bacon on the floor at my feet, seems I'd made a friend. Evidently he has a habit of hiding a piece of bacon or bone under the pillows in the common room, charming.

One man drives up at the last minute, illegally parks his car in the turning area rather than the official car park and then nips down the slipway: ...
... rain we were in high spirits, actually we were weirdly glad it was raining because it felt like that is what the weather should be like in Scotland. We reminisced about when we took our 100 mile (1 finger) photo in the scorching heat, somewhere way back south, it seemed a long time ago. Some of today and yesterday I have been able to pull Henry along, I'm glad of the chance to repay him for dragging me along kicking and screaming for our first 700 miles. We had lunch ...
