Day -1: Friday 15th April

Well, we are on our way.  Left home about 8:15 after a photo shoot with The Wokingham Paper and a live telephone interview with Andrew Peach for his breakfast show on Radio Berkshire.  All good (I think).  Good progress despite heavy rain.  Stopped at 11:45 for a coffee, sandwich and a fuel up at Charnock Richard Services near Preston.

Building the new Forth Road Bridge

None stop then all the way to Aviemore where we arrived at bang on 6pm.  Exciting to see the new Forth Road Bridge being built.

More rain and roadworks slowed us down a bit round Glasgow but no major surprises until we saw the snow on the hills…………………and then it started to snow!!!

Snow?  We didn’t order snow!

Pat at Eriskay Guest House gave us a lovely welcome.  All very cosy.  We are in the main house but they have Glamping Pods in the garden.  Treated ourselves to a nice meal at The Cairngorm Hotel.

A long day but so far so good.  Onwards to John O’Groats in the morning (after the full Scottish of course).
