first full day (almost)

First full day. Well nearly full we finished by 1.30. The b n b was OK , but the Irish builders staying there walked around like they were wearing boots even in bare feet The weather was wet windy and very cold. We left around 8.30 and had a long boring slog with much road lightened only by a chat with a lady and her collie. I gave midge the chance of a swim in loch watten to clean him up. We had a beer in the trout hotel and returned there for good food. Shame about the beer. Last night's beer was good in the seaview. This will be the last blog for a few days as we pass out of radio contact. Long day tomorrow with lousy forecast.:


  1. Hi Paul & Midge. Glad to see you have got started, shame about the road walking necessity up there, I have that to come. We are currently in Hay on Wye and going well. A couple more days on Offa's Dyke then move across.
    Well done on your start, I will try and keep up with your blog.
    Cheers Glen & Jasper.

  2. good look with the rest of the walk!

  3. Hello Paul & Midge,
    I'm looking forward to following your JOGLE and glad to hear you're underway. I did a LEJOG in 2010 and remember the A9 all too well. Enjoy your walk and the pints along the way!
