"End to End via the Margins"
-the diary of a walk.

- Evanton to Alness


It was a day of rest, really, just four miles in the day. And a chance to stay indoors at the end of it, too. The mileages will ramp up near the end, though. On the B9176, a cyclist passed me and stopped to consult his map: a LEJOGer? If so, it's two more days for him, seven for me.

There's a smell for about a mile of the road. I don't recognise it. Maybe it's a distillery - there are lots around here.

God of all, we pray for those who work with oil and gas rigs,
for divers and people dealing with the hazards of the North Sea,
for people in port, maintaining and building them,
and for those whose businesses depend on them.
We pray for their safety,
and for the security of their work.
We remember those who stll bear the wounds of the Piper Alpha tragedy;
"Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted."
Amen, may it be so.
