Hitch-hiking to Skye

By nonsavant

Two fantastic things:

(1) Hitch-hiking

I left Tiree yesterday morning at 10am, hoping to hitch all the way to Mallaig before the departure of the last ferry to Armadale (at 5:45pm). A tallish order. Well, I made it, with 5 minutes to spare! Things weren’t looking good at Fort William, standing in the rain at 4:20pm with 46 miles still to go.

Start of the journey

By nonsavant

Left Glasgow last Friday (30th September) evening and caught the train to Oban. Stayed in Oban overnight at the cheap ‘n’ cheerful Jerry Inglis Hostel, with a 6am start the following day to catch the ferry to Tiree.
