24th July – 16th August. Gairloch to Blyth via Orkney
After a great ECSW and many family affairs we found our way to Newcastle station for the complex return trip to Baddachro – and the train was running late, which meant we would miss all our connections aaghh ! A little known fact that we found out in Edinburgh, is that if you miss your connection, East Coast will get you to your destination. For us that meant they picked up a £115 taxi bill!! Back on boat everything tip top. 25th July, slipped our mooring and motorsailed for Stornoway. 13.00 Orca whale crossed our path, diving one side and reappearing on the other, where’s the camera when you need it!
