I left A and her friend F in Oban where they will take the ferry to Barra and, tomorrow, start cycling the Western Isles. I then drove to Ullapool so the car will be there for our return. I'm about to go to Fort William by bus, and then to Glenfinnan by train, before walking three kilometres to a bothy. Tomorrow I'll start to walk back to Ullapool via the Cape Wrath Trail and some mountains.

I've not done a multi-day walk for 26 years, and just because I do mountain marathons doesn't mean that I can keep going, so I'm not sure if what I've planned is reasonable, which is exciting!

Update: I'm thwarted by the summer bus getting in after the last train so the adventure starts tonight!
