JOGLE Day 7 06/05/17 Struie Hill – Evanton 13 miles

We camped at a delightful little site – Inchintaury Farm near to Edderton. The owner Alan gave us the pitch free of charge and was very talkative about all sorts of things. There was one other campervan on site a German/scot by the name of Dagmar Finlayson generously donated to my cause. 

My reward for doing the extra miles yesterday was a short jaunt today along the B9176, more jumping up and down onto verges to avoid the traffic, which included about 50 trucks of various ages, shapes and sizes participating in a vintage truck rally. One was pulled in by the roadside so I stopped to inquire as to the problem. The driver was busy wringing out wet baby clothes and wiping vomit from them – while his partner was putting the said baby into a clean outfit. I offered my sympathies, told them it brought back memories and went on my way. Cath and PJ were waiting at Strathrory Bridge and we had a quick chat before I plodded on. Eventually I can through a couple of hamlets the second of which had a great idea for a school sign – check the plastic bottles in the picture. Before getting to Evanton I met two lovely ladies picnicking in the corner of a field. I stopped again to say hello, chatted for a while and they very kindly donated £20 to my charity. I never cease to be amazed by people’s kindness and generosity. I finally arrived at the camp site mid afternoon and had plenty of time to relax in the sunshine, tend to my toenails and later on to the Novar Arms and some fantastic conversation with locals.

  1. Well done Dave 1 whole week down, with your feet in good shape, in good spirits ……. and presumably the body too! Glad it’s going well and Cath looks happy too. Great to see the photos, keep them coming. Good luck to you both with week 2, love from Cumbria xx

    1. Thanks Claire – we are solving problems as they arise but nothing major and enjoying the experience. The comments I am receiving really make a difference and keep me going.
