... 6 hours of driving down some stressful roads, we decide to call it. We're not going to see much since we are literally in the clouds. We drive through the town of Portree, the capital here. I don't know if capital is the right term. We take a look around and pop into a few souvenir shops. On our way back we see a sign saying "Voted best whisky bar..." so we had to pop in.

Up early. In theory today was to be a shorter day, only 16 miles, so we had in mind the idea to push on to shorten our last day into Fort William. After a friendly goodbye, we were on our way by 8, but it was slow going. After my exertions of yesterday, it was my turn to hurt. Lots of lactic acid in my legs still and no power. To make matters worse, there was no real path out if the hostel in the direction we were headed. I am also fighting ...
