Faff Day!

We managed to spend an entire morning lounging around at the bothy, the weather was gorgeous so we say out in the garden with breakfast and cuddles whilst our still dirty laundry hung over the walls. (I think we need something stronger than travel wash to get the marsh land out of my socks!)

We slowly packed the car with the aim of getting to Skye in the evening. And after a game of Giant Jenga and a quick sunbathe we headed on our way.

We found the most Gorgeous lunch spot just off the road by a loch where Gregor discovered cheese and hobnob sandwiches? I’m yet to try them…

We rolled into Kyle at 4 ish where we found a cafe to base ourselves in to steal the last of the internet and look into coaches from Skye.

This is when we discovered how much Jaz’s train would cost and that it was in half an hour!!! So it was a very rushed and sudden goodbye to the wonderful Jasmin as she headed home to prepare for her next adventure! I would much rather be cramped than have all this room and missing that wonderful Ginge, but with luck we’re going to pop by at the end of our trip!

The three of us, Gregor, Callum and I, then headed over the bridge and onto Skye where we set up camp just north of Portree.

There were SO many midges.

I’ve never seen anything like it so we went for a quick drive and then hid out in the tent all night.

The next morning we literally threw everything into the car, got in and sped off with the windows down to get rid of the infestation of midges inside!

The coach wasn’t until 10am so we had brekka and sorted out or bags for the next few weeks.

We arrived in Fort Bill at 2pm ish where we then it a bus to Joe’s who had kindly been storing our bikes for us. We then chased a few chickens back into his garden from next door, had lunch and attempted to cycle with our bags.

They’re pretty heavy!!

We found a spot to wild camp down by Glen Nevis after doing a food shop, and then after dinner cycled down to the closest pub to meet up with Joe for a few pints.

It was a lovely evening, and it was so nice to see Joe again, tomorrow we’re heading on our bikes from Fort William down to Oban, we’ve been promised some cycle paths but the first 12 miles are definatley on an A road so we’ll have to see how it goes!!
