We Are On Our Way
… quite a steep hill …
… from the town centre.
There are trips out on each of the five non “travelling” days and, cunningly, the company doesn’t tell you which trip is on which day until you get there.
Meet and greet with Nessie NOT guaranteed. But awful souvenirs may be purchased!
The river (Ness, fbb believes) is a real treat; but equally interesting is the small but perfectly formed (?) bus station.
Maybe returning via the ferry from Armadale to Mallaig.
The blurb then says via Acharacle and the Corran Ferry back to Bill’s Fort. If that’s right …
… that will be two new ferry routes for fbb to “cop”.
Sometimes called McCaig’s tower which is most definitely isn’t. It served no useful purpose and, for the fbbs, requires a crippling ascent and descent. But it does look pretty floodlit.
This is almost an exact duplicate of a trip last year with Lochs and Glens so fbb is hoping it is on a Tuesday or a Thursday and he may opt out and do an intriguing ferry and bus circular from Fort William. This is the ferry.
Only joking, Mrs fbb, this is the ferry.
In a week ot so, the company is trying out a commuter service from Netham Lock …
… where the city centre river “cut” joins the River Avon …
It then chugs via the dark underbelly of Temple Meads station …
… and round into the city centre.
Red Funnel Expands Big Small Time
The ferry from Southampton to Hythe …
It is not clear what the real reason might be. Surely Red Funnel aren’t just being “nice”?
