Good morning everyone.  In a very short time I will be heading off to catch the ferry.  From Oban I will travel tonight to Fort William where I will spend the evening in the Glen Nevis SYHA.  Tomorrow, Thursday, I will get the bus from Fort William to Dornie where I will overnight at the Dornie Hotel.  On Friday, the walk across the Highlands of Scotland en route to St Cyrus and Montrose will begin.

For those who are interested, here is my route:

1.     Dornie - Bealach Na Sroine
2.   - Glen Affric SYHA (the most remote hostel in Scotland, I believe)
3.   - Dundereggan
4.   - Fort Augustus
5.   - Garva Bridge
6.   - Kingussie
7.   - White Bridge
8.   - Braemar
9.   - Ballater
10. - Tarfside
11. - St Cyrus
