One of their services is to help travelers find and book lodging. Our helper wasn't able to find a booking at a price we liked among the hotels and inns they work with.

A poster for the Inversnaid bunk-house advertises a bistro and a hot tub - youth hostelling was never like this in my day!
Afterwards we sit outside to stock up on some Vitamin D. Swallows are darting about high overhead, and we remind ourselves that this is meant to be a sign that rain ...
