Sunday, May 17 - Day 103 - Fort William
It is cold and wet when Dick gets up and goes for coffee. It snowed quite heavily in the mountains during the night and the snow line is very far down. It is still raining off and on so we will see what the day brings.
He returns to the room about 9AM to check on Carolyn who still hasn’t moved. So, he opens the curtains. Breakfast is served until 10AM, but he is hungry. We get to breakfast about 9:30. It is the standard Scottish fare. Dick has eggs and salmon, Carolyn has her usual poached eggs and toast.
By 10:30 AM it looks like it might clear, well it is not raining at the moment, so we decide to start a circle route that will take us up toward Mallaig, where the ferry leaves the mainland for the Isle of Skye. We stop at the Glenfinnan Monument and the railway viaduct of Harry Potter fame. We get there in time to see the train crossing, but it is not the steam engine today.
