Thanks to JR for taking us to the station. He makes a good taxi driver and no need to tip.
All credit to the often maligned rail network which got us to Inverness via changes at Birmingham and Edinburgh on time and without any hitches. The scenery from Edinburgh to Inverness is stunning and a journey we would recommend. The final leg tomorrow to Wick is a further 4.5 hours after 10.5 hours today – the distance we will be walking is just starting to sink in.
