Sailing Off

Last nights visitor was Michael Lowe who is cycling just for fun from Edinburgh to Wolverhampton, where he will meet up with friends for a boating holiday.

Todays journey will take him down to Garstang near Preston.

The highlight of his trek so far has been seeing the "Devils Beeftub" near Moffat. This is a dramatic 500ft deep hollow formed by four hills. It was used in the past by the Border Reivers to hide stolen cattle.

Happy boating Michael.

South East to North West

Last nights visitors Steve Kinsella and Derek Gould are cycling from Dover to Cape Wrath. They left Dover on August 28th and should be arriving in Cape Wrath on September 16th.

They have already taken in the sights of Cambridge, Lincoln and York, but the highlight of their journey so far has been to have a meal at Britains highest inn, the Tan Hill Inn, where the wind was howling outside.

They also plan to have rest days on the Isles of Arran and Skye.
