I just don’t have the time or the energy to make a film a day and write a blog, so I’m just going to post the links to the YouTube videos on here for now. Most films not available on mobile devices due to copyright restrictions but I think you can enjoy them all if you watch from within this page.
IT’S the start of day two on the North Coast 500. I’m in Ullapool.
I left Cambridgeshire at noon on Friday 13 January and arrived by the beach at Fort George, near Inverness, at just past midnight.
The Garmin Camper satnav took me through Glasgow, along Loch Lomond (where I saw at least three moon rises over the mountains across the water). Glencoe was very dramatic. A weird mix of snow showers and moonlight but not fun to drive through.
Yesterday morning I filled up Fanny with diesel, set up a couple of vlogging cameras and set off for the west coast.
Last time I was in Ullapool it was hot and sunny. Today it’s dull and grey – exactly the conditions I was dreading. So I took three hours this morning to get moving. I studied some technical manuals, made a cooked breakfast and lazed about listening to the radio.
I parked on the harbour to write this but the internet connection was awful so I’ve moved to a Tesco car park. The van is warm and dry and I’ve got plenty to do: books, magazines, films on the laptop.
