Day 23 - Leaving Craigpark B&B.jpg

Last night I arrived at the Craigparkhouse bed and breakfast at 1815. O.K. I'm tired now but not shattered.

I met my hosts Kay and Billy Main who are a lovely couple who made me feel extremely welcome. They gave me a lift to the local pub where my evening meal had been booked and paid for. ;-))

As for the accommodation, it is extremely well presented, comfortable with everything one would need in a B&B and then some... Including a complimentary bottle of beer in a mini fridge.

Can you spot a trend here. Everyone so far in Scotland have been very friendly, approachable and polite. You hear on television and in newspapers how society is turning on itself with the issue of ASBOs, but out here there is a real feel of friendship and goodwill. Maybe people need to get out of the cities and large towns and visit the countryside.

  1. Hi, Well done so far. We met you at Inveroran, just North of Bridge of Orchy, by the bridge & in the pub. Will be following your progress with interest. Glad you gave up the extra weight - we carried our gear over a 750m col in the heat & it was hard work. Sandy & Lorna Presly.

  2. Doing well Malcolm! We're both thinking of you. We're finally moving house on the 19th and looking forward to putting you up! Here's to good weather and a straight road. Elene and Stephen Foster
