INVERNESS TO ULLAPOOL

LOO EMPTYING SAGA

Dawn

7pm

Today we saw it as we had to have a 6am get up dead line to get to Ullapool..Book our ferry to Stornoway for a 10am loading

The drive was again cross country with the sun at our backs throwing its light on the autumnal colours and what drizzle was in the air caused rainbows ..Who needs to go to else where for “The Fall” when it’s here in our backyard

Hetty romped along the narrow windy roads ..over Hill and Glen passing Lochs and Hydro Electric schemes with their dam walled valleys creating more Lochs ..Gorgeous

We have been on the road for 6 days and John has been looking for a cassette ( Loo) emptying point but with our two cassette system in place we don’t worry unduly…TWO LOO SYSTEM you ask ? YES we have a spare cassette and can go about 10 days without going on a camp site to empty ..The full one is strapped to the bike rack but today we had to find a place to empty it because with the bike rack extended the length of Hetty is longer ..Making the ferry crossing more expensive..

A good sleep spot and loo in between Inverness and Ullapool GPS 57.637517, -4.678676

A tourist loo and campervan sleepy spot was found en- route and ablutions completed ..

The ferry arrived as we parked up in the holding area which was full of Tesco ” Shop we will Drop ” lorries assuming there is a distribution center on Lewis to deliver to the outlying communities

A pleasant enough crossing force 5 ish .. but nothing to worry about .. docked and parked up for a wander to the tourist info office and finding a Chess Man and A husband Creche … . Ferry returning to Ullapool

Now parked up in the sand dunes on the west coast trying to shelter from the gale rocking poor Hetty about .. Pre Made curry for supper and hopefully a good snooze.

Me and Him and Hetty like adventures ..We spend most of our summers sailing Now a little elderly for big boat racing and have turned to Radio Controlled Yachting competing nationally and even internationally ..I have travelled to many countries in my other life BJ (before John)lots of Indian backpacking trips. Panning gold in the Yukon..Pacific island hopping ..Far east and so on ..John won't go to India but I managed to get him to Morocco and Sri Lanka but didn't expect a Tsunami.
