A reet humdinger. We wake the the news that the van's kaput.

Keith and I head of at 5:30 am leaving John to sort out the support vehicle.

Half and hour in and the rain started - It didn't bloody stop, DID NOT BLOODY STOP!! Our favorite pie shop from last year at Tyndrum was shut so we had to settle for a warm fry-up.

45 miles done and great news - John's repaired the van. He's just gotta catch us up now. Thanks must go out to the lads at Arnold Clark Nissan Dumbarton and the team for helping sort the Van out.

100 miles in after enduring the horrendous conditions through ranoch moor and Glencoe and we arrive at Spean Bridge.

Our saviour John arrives with clean and dry clobber - ecstasy. But wouldn't it be cruel if someone was to take a photo while someone was getting changed!! Good job Kieth wouldn't dare do that to me!!

Still siling down, no respite until 5pm and we arrive at Inverness at 6pm. Very Very tired. 155 miles completed today

I would like to sleep now to recharge for the final push. Impossible as Keith and John are snoring and Farting in stereo

Steve K signing off. 110 miles to go..........
