Our number of cyclists has increased- Lucia and Gregory Treloar joined us in Inverness, where we were very kindly hosted by the beautiful parish of St Mary's. A stunning day's cycle down the banks of Loch Ness (no monster sighted) and the lochs further south, followed by a climb into the mountains, past Ben Nevis and some stunning scenery, ending our day in Fort William, where another parish, also called St Mary's, hosted us again! Anna made 2 awesome apple crumbles from scratch, and after cycling 65 miles - not a bad effort we thought- for dinner, and we also had pasta. We have had a lot of pasta, and are still loving the stuff.

Now an entire paragraph devoted to punctures- Anna is now on 4, Greg O'Connor is mounting a catch up effort on a current total of 2, one very inconveniently timed to interrupt our frantic sprint to Glasgow for 7pm. We can almost fix them now we think.
Weather- great. We can't quite believe it.
And to show it's not all hard work....
