This is our last day in Fort William and we still don't have any standing snow in the town. Today, at least, there are some snow flurries, and it looks like it may just settle. I am watching all the tv pictures and pictures on social media, and I am jealous!!

I guess the next problem we will have is driving hone tomorrow. Besides packing my other job today is to get supplies for the car. Glasgow looks to have sorted itself out, and it looks as if the temperatures are rising in the south as the day goes on. It will even be 3 degrees in Fort William today, and that is the warmest it has been!

I have to start packing today, and I may go down to the Fort William to take a pic or two, but I'm not expecting to take any fantastic shots.

All in all, it has been a very disappointing trip on the photographic side of this trip, and for that I can only apologise.

Chris decided to come with me today and the aim of the day was a trip to Urquhart Castle. I bought the bus tickets, we had a bus trip of 1.45 hours. Wee made our way to the visitors centre, knowing we had the luxury of 4 hours here. We walkec in, ready to brandish our Engkish Heritage cards, and the lady behind the desk told us that the castle was closed!!! We could go for free to the gift shop and the cafe, but the castle and its grounds were closed to the public! I pointed out that I had a 4 hour wait for my return bus ride, and she seemed shell shocked that we didnt arrive by car!

We went down to the cafe and gift shop where I just fell into tears!!! I couldn‘t believe that another thing had failed! In my desperation I fished out my printed bus time tables and I discovered that there was a bus back in ine hour! With that one small joy in our hearts we sat down to over priced drinks snd caught our bus back!

Chris felt so bad for me that he took me for lunch and then another pint before we had yo go back to the house!

It was Andy’s turn to cook, and as he doesnt, he bought us all dinner out! The food I had was just lovely!

I took nothing photographic wise two days in a row now!!! I am so upset about that! I took a snap on my phone of all I saw of the castle today, I am so sorry not to get the shots I had plannex!
