FORT WILLIAN BOUND - ALMOST TOO MUCH
The funny thing about the Highlands is that it isn't pretty, really. This beauty is fierce and wild and full of edges sharp enough to draw blood, the mountains sheer and craggy. The sky above is the colour of a mortuary slab, a uniform grey, except for the western reaches where it darkens like a bruise. It's getting late again. So we run the A890 and A87 to Invergarry, then the A82 to Fort William, and fall into strange beds in an even stranger hotel. I'm running out of things to say. My head feels like it's about to pop.
