    ... we are to stay the night, but first, today's big adventure is the steam train trip to Mallaig on the West coast of Scotland. A text message broke the news that due to the heavy rain yesterday, (it is the wettest summer in over 30 years,) the train to Mallaig is cancelled for track repairs due to flooding! Oh no! But all was not lost. The train was rescheduled to travel to Crainlarich. A longer journey, steaming through the highlands, but we ...

    ... the local museum and discovered much about the history of Mull. Governor Lachlan Macquarie, the fifth Governor of the colony of NSW was born and, after achieving much in his life, is buried on Mull with an inscription 'The father of Australia'.

    ... countryside. Even without seeing the train it would have been worth taking a walk. After the train had passed we saw a deer feeding nearby, pleasing our animal lovers once again. The next stop was Glencoe. We had a light lunch at the Clachaig Inn- the sign outside stated 'No hawkers or Campbells'... study up on your Scottish history if you want to know why (google 'Glencoe' and see what options are provided!) In addition to its sad history, Glencoe now ...

    ... at peace there. We went for a look around the following morning. Its a busy ferry and fishing port, but somehow charming. The town had been bashed by one of the many recent storms, which is staggering given the islands that stand between the weather and the harbour.
