Day 27 : Fort William to Broadford (112.3)

Day 27 complete – 112.3 miles, 1808m climbing. Very heavy rain all night.

Matt left Fort William at 7.20am and cycled along the A830 and down to the A861 to Lochailort and on to Mallaig where he caught the 3.50pm ferry to Armadale, Isle of Skye and then followed the A851/A87 to Skye Camping at Broadford.

We were worried the ferry may be cancelled as there were warnings along the road for disruption due to wind and heavy rain.

Rained on and off along the A82/A87 to Skye and has got heavier and more persistant.
9th day in Scotland and the rest day in Stranraer was the only dry day so far ?

Steve and I drove along the A830 to see the Glenfinnan Viaduct and Memorial.

This was used in the Harry Potter films sadly we didn’t see the steam train going over it. Got absolutely drenched.
