Fort William to GlasgowSeptember 17, 2016 in the United Kingdom
Today started with a trip to the hospital in Fort William, to make sure that Courtney's foot was sprained, and not broken. After the fastest NHS A&E visit ever (thanks NHS Highland), we had seen a doctor, had an x-ray, and were discharged within an hour. It is just a bad sprain, nothing more. So far as hospital experiences go, it was pretty damn good - everyone's idea of how the NHS should work.
After our pitstop at the hospital, it was time to travel back to Glasgow via Glenfinnan. Historically famous as the site from which the Jacobite Revolution began, but more recently, famous as the site of the Harry Potter Bridge. FYI, the view of the bridge from the lookout point is not ideal. You only see the bridge from the side, with no concept of the sweeping curve of the viaduct. The view of the loch, down the valley however, is somthing to behold. Bonnie Prince Charlie might not have succeeded in reclaiming the throne, but he did pick a beautiful spot to land.
Courtney then drove like a rally car driver back to Glasgow and it was then time for a quiet dinner with family. A last chance to say goodbye, and catch up over good food, drink and way too much chocolate cake!Read more
