Newtonmore to Ford

After  a visit to the house with the turret, Glenmore was my next target, packages six and seven being delivered to the Youth Hostel there. Down by Loch Morlich, overnight snow had resulted in a very white view of the Cairngorms, pictured - top.

Then it was on to Aviemore for coffee, and package eight to Vermont Guest House.

Cannich, Drumnadrochit, Fort Augustus and Spean Bridge all successfully accepted further deliveries, leaving the car boot bereft of all but Saturday's batch of library books - still on their long journey from Dunkeld to Nantwich. 

By now it was mid afternoon - time for coffee and a new book from Nevisports in Fort William. 

There wasn't really time to go home, so I enjoyed a scenic drive past Appin to Oban, and onwards past Loch Feochan (pictured - bottom) to Ford, near Kilmartin. There, Alison did me proud, with a lovely meal. It was great to catch up, three years having passed since Sue and I passed through on our 2012 TGO B&B Challenge. 

There's a blackcap in the garden, and a cuckoo nearby.
