After frugally planning to come down by train I've decided that it's just money after all, and have booked the car on the ferry for Friday night, giving me a sporting chance of getting home on the Sunday, if we make it back to Ardgay before 5.

Oh, the tension.

But this now gives me an extra half day to fart around in before packing :D

Set yer sat navs to IV24 3DH - that should get you to the village centre should be easy enough to find the train station car park.

Looks like a pretty straight forward drive up. A9 until Tarlogie / Dornoch Firth then left onto A836.

If I need to phone Kaiser or Gazz, I wont.

I'll have a Park Tool, tyre levers, spoke key, crappy pump, cable ties, tube, puncture repair kit and bottle opener. Maybe also my Bahco shifting spanner for headset tweaks. Lights, Blackberry, charger, GPS receiver, compass, waterproof breeks, laminated maps, Avon Skin so Soft for the midgies, neoprene overshoes. My son's cycling mitts. Camera.
