One day to go

The latest report from our cyclists has them at Lairg after two more days of cycling north from Fort William.  The route through the Highlands along the length of Loch Ness was spectacular despite the continuing drizzle – where has this summer gone?  But this could not dampen spirits as the cycle team followed the Caledonian Canal and along the banks of the longest loch in Scotland.  No sighting of Nessie but a brief stop at the Glengarry Castle Hotel for coffee showed how generous people can be with well wishes for the young team members and some unexpected donations.   This has been typical all along the ride but each time it happens, it still comes as delightful surprise and we are truly bowled over by it.  On to Evanton, near Dingwall, a distance of 75 miles for the overnight stop to be met by some of the families of the West Buckland students who have come up to spur on the team and be at John O’Groats at the end.  Then today, Saturday 19th, leaving Evanton in heavy showers and strong winds, the landscape began to change and start to become more remote as another 65 miles was completed to Altnahara, returning to Lairg to camp overnight.  And then there is tomorrow with the final push to the summit.  This article is brought to you by travelandinsure.com – specialist in ethical travel insurance.
