Just so no-one thinks I’ve forgotten to blog for the last few days … I’ve been walking in the north west Highlands with an old chum from Somerset, “The Engineer”. We are currently in Ullapool. Can recommend the bookshop (with internet cafe), the Ferry Inn, but not the cheap rooms in the Caledonian Hotel – grotty rooms, coach tours of coffin-dodgers and meals at the convenience of staff, not customers.
Weather appalling and room looks like a Chinese laundry; should brighten up tomorrow. Her Maj tells me all is well at The Chookery, so I’d better believe her.
Will write again soon.
