Back in Inverness
The train journey north was a painful one. A trackside fire near Retford meant we were stuck outside Newark for three hours! Luckily our connection at York was stuck behind us in the delay so no worries about missing it.
Eventually with some other delays we arrived in Inverness nearly four hours late, just before midnight. I'll give Virgin Trains their due we had lots of complimentary tea, coffee and snacks to help keep us sane.
Today we have spent recovering, doing some essential jobs, washing down the decks and sightseeing in Inverness.
Tomorrow we head off into the Moray Firth to explore some of the wonderful harbours there.
Present aboard are Alice and myself and plenty of stores, weather looks ok so we shall head further east before turning south round Rattray Head for those of you who listen to the Shipping Forecast.
