The Road goes ever on and on; Down from the door where it began;
Now far ahead the Road has gone; And I must follow, if I can;
Pursuing it with eager feet; Until it joins some larger way;
Where many paths and errands met; And whither then? I cannot say.

[JRR Tolkien, Lord of the Rings]

At 1630 yesterday (Wednesday) we were standing at the foghorn just NW of Cape Wrath lighthouse, our journey complete...

...well, complete except for walking out of Cape Wrath, which is what we're doing right now.

More to follow.

  1. Fantastic! Well done. Like I said before can't you just keep going? I need something to read to remind me of real life while i am stuck working

  2. Fantasmagorical, well done the pair of you.

  3. Congratulations from Staffordshire. Now what?

  4. Just catching up on my reading and, well, it's over :) Well done the pair of you. What's next?

  5. Chris - sorry to have disappointed by chosing the fast way of getting home (25.5 hours from Kervaig to home, versus 6 weeks from home to Kervaig!)

    Sophie - Thanks for drinking all of the wine on my behalf. Didn't stop me waking with a raging headache the morning after, mind!

    Dawn - Thank you!

    Stephen & Baz - The next Biggie is already in the planning stage and will be announced in due course. It's not going to take place for a while, though and I've got itchy feet with all this sitting around with no firm plans.
