img_7458A short stage today that led us out of the tranquillity of Glen Lonan and into the teeming metropolis of Oban.  Some lovely ladies stopped their car to wish us well and give us a donation.  One explained how much her granddaughter loved the youth pilgrimage to Iona that Craig Lodge leads each year.  This gave us a real boost and reminded us what we are fundraising for.  Thank you!

Tired and sore legs today.  Dad is more of a mountain goat and so while he is very used to skipping up and down hills, hard, unyielding tarmac is another matter.

 

 

img_7451We walked through the town in the warm evening air to the cathedral dedicated to St Columba and thanked him for getting us this far.  Tomorrow we cross to Mull.

“May the Trinity protect me wherever I stay, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Bright angels walk with me dear presence-in every dealing…” St Columba
