From Rob Roy’s grave to the Highlands and Islands


This morning we left the Isle of Mull and after getting some essentials in Oban drove up to Fort William and checked into the anonymity of a Travelodge. It is sited in the small town centre. The town has a population of 10,000 but it sprawls a bit, at least the bit along Loch Linnhe does. First impressions are unfavourable after having come from Oban. But it does serve as a useful rest stop half way through the holiday. And a check out time of midday is a bonus with no breakfasts to rise for. There’s a Wetherspoons below us which Jafer would recommend but other options too. Mostly pubs that serve food. Tomorrow the Isle of Skye awaits.

Things I recommend, poached eggs and kipper’s for breakfast, at least once in your life.

Things I don’t recommend, packing your toiletries so that you have fish breath until you’re able to check in to next stop.
