Made it to Glasgow
We made it to Glasgow this afternoon, pretty much on time after 12 hours of travelling. Once we arrived we found an outdoor store to pick up some fuel for our stove, and then we checked into the hotel. We didn't waste much time finding a place to have fish, chips, and mushy peas. On the way back from dinner we stopped at a grocery store to get some last minute supplies. I'm looking forward to the McVitties Dark Chocolate Hobnob's already!!
We are just enjoying some last moments of luxury before we get on the trail tomorrow. Mandy is in bed reading, and I just finished a bag of Walkers cheese and onion crisps while watching the news.
The plan tomorrow is to catch the train to Plockton, our starting point, at 7:00 a.m. We should arrive at around 1:30 p.m. and start walking by 2:30. I'm not sure if we'll have service or not as we should be in a fairly remote location by tomorrow night. At the outside we will have service by Monday, when we are scheduled to arrive in Fort Augustus and we'll update then for sure.
That's it for now. It's hard to believe we will start walking across Scotland tomorrow, but I am very excited. Send us all the positive hiking vibes you can over the next few days, we might need it!
