Another Trip

Hotfoot from Martin's final Corbett, I paused this morning to admire the view from Sligachan (above), before cruising over to Fort Augustus, the planned terminus of my next trip, in bright sunny weather. It really is a pleasure to be in Scotland at this time of year. The gorse is in full bloom, the skies are bright (albeit sometimes with rainbows), and the birds are singing, circling or swooping, according to preference.

Leaving the car at the campsite I gathered a few meagre possessions and ambled over to the main road, where chance had it that I came upon a Proud Scotsman.

"Would you like a lift to Aberfeldy?"

"Yes please, kind sir."

So that's where I am. By coincidence, The Mad Austrian, Markus Petter, arrived shortly afterwards. He has spotted a restaurant.

We will trail in his wake...
