... that morning; ordered the part in, Matt goes under the van, removes the old one, replaces it with the new one. We had a van of gypsies approach us asking the problem and if we would be hanging around overnight, dodgy. Matt had it running just in the nick of time. It was 7:30pm by the time we left Dingwall and began our journey for the 3rd time. That night we wild camped at our bayside spot from the night ...
