    Here we are again

    May 20, 2017 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 48 °F

    Only this time it's raining and the wrench that came with the car doesn't fit the bolts on the wheel. Fortunately, a cheerful Jamie, who had the most endearing Scottish accent, showed up just 10 minutes after we called the rental company. He just happened to be 5 minutes down the road.

    We both needed to use the facilities at this pullout. It consisted of a stone fence corral, very private.

    Jamie changed the tire with little fuss, but commiserated with us that we would need a new one. None of us was wild about the idea of driving the remainder of the day on our decidedly slap-dash appearing spare. Cell coverage had been spotty most of the day and we were heading into extensive no-service territory.

    Jamie's place of business had a tire, but it was an hour up the road. It was heading the right direction, however, and we liked Jamie, so we got directions and headed off. It was a hilarious ride to Stevenson Rescue through the misty hills along winding one-lane roads. His garage was at his residence, surrounded with 6 massive rescue trucks. His frisky Jack Russel was excited to meet us. While Jamie was taking care of the tire, the pup went sniffing around in the oil spotted repair bay til he found a rubber part that was the perfect size for playing fetch. He dropped it at our feet, and we dutifully kicked it (we did NOT want to touch it) and he fetched like a ninja, pausing only to mark his territory on a large rusty truck muffler lying on the garage floor.

    Jamie was as good as his word, rescuing us from getting "fetch ankle," and sent us on our way feeling that providence had smiled on us.

    Day 6. Inveroran to Glencoe

    August 3, 2017 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☀️ 15 °C

    After a disappointing breakfast we headed off on the Drovers Trail to Glencoe. The only good thing about the trail was that our feet were dry. The weather was good and we have quite stunning views. On either side of the trail was bog.
    Rannoch Moor is the largest uninhabited wilderness in the UK.(50 square miles) our friends "the yellow submarine orchids" were in abondance and testimony to the danger of stepping off the path.
    The rocky trail was hard on the feet and we were filled with admiration for Emily and Agathe who did this walk in conjunction withthe walk to Inveroran. Character building.
    We made good time and caught the 12-27 bus to Glencoe. He wouldn't drop us off at the junction road to the SYHA so we alighted at Glencoe village.
    After lunch we made the 1hours walk to the hostel.
    Only frozen meals at the hostel so off we went to the Clachaig pub for a meal. A 20 min walk.
    I have ordered a taxi to take us back to Kinghouse for tomorrow's walk.
