    ... 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!

    ... William we came across 'Neptunes Staircase' a series of 10 locks. There was a yacht entering the top one, so we walked up to watch in progress through them. brought back memories of canal boating in 1987.
    We were leaving Fort William about 5.30 for the last 30 miles to Oban, when we saw a sign that said the road was closed at Conon - I think that was the name - it was the only ...
