As the scenery changes it reminds me of a film called deliverance None of the other teams have heard of it

Rick G hasn't even heard of Top Gun

At this point I feel a little old...

The further we go the better the views, time's getting on and we are never getting through in one day

All hotel bookings will have to change as the whole schedule goes one day behind.

But at least the Targa's might catch up???

We arrive at Fort Augustus, above Loch Ness and I don't think that I have ever seen a better view in my life.

Scotland is beautiful

But there is no more locks tonight and we'll be staying here, which is awesome news as I love the place

This combination of circumstances could cause some anxiety!

Although probably not as disturbing as this:

After a walk about we find a restaurant on the shore of Loch Ness and we sample the local delights...

Battered Haggis and Nessie's Hot Pot Pie.

The Guinness is nothing like Ireland though

We agree with team Duma that tomorrow we would find the Loch Ness Monster Sprits are really high and we are all well rested.

Trev opts for a late start so the Targa's can catch up a bit more. So tonight we can drink more than just one or two pints. Tonight, we would drink Whisky

Yep, but we are trying to sample the local food and drink wherever we go. However as many places near water are quite touristy we are not getting the real deal... Maybe just a sample of an interpretation???

Facebook post by Mrs G:

The ribs are having dinner at Fort Augustus at the foot of Loch Ness and staying there for the night, so have slipped a day. Plan to be in Inverness tomorrow night. Not sure where the Targas are, but they are somewhere on the Caledonian Canal

We walk up to a bar that sells loads of different whiskies and start to sample their wares

We don't drink much though, we are trying to get the very best from every day and tomorrow we have a monster to catch!!!

We walk back to Black Hawk, grab our sleeping bags and Jurgen heads off to a ditch while I sleep on the pontoon wedged against a fence so I don't roll over in the night into the water

Mrs W has read the news on facebook and gives me a call so I jam the phone between my ear and my inflatable pillow and during our conversation I fall asleep...

She listens to my light snore for a few minutes and then starts to shout, Alex, Alex, ALEX!!!!

I wake up and she tells me to put the phone in my sleeping bag or someone might steal it.

I say goodnight and I'm back off to sleep with the bivi bag pulled over my head to I don't get eaten alive by the many insects around
