Recent events have clashed with L's exams. He has been able to have them deferred. After the funeral he still needs to go back in order to fully vacate his flat. If dropped of at Dalwhinnie he has relatively efficient onward journey by public transport; 2 trains and a bus.
Its a shame he has no sense of that end of term party mood that will be being enjoyed by his fellow students.
I'll be back down to collect him on Wednesday
