6 AM is full daylight here! Doing my final check of the place. I love this cottage so much.
As I was getting ready to leave to meet my ride, Margaret came to my door and informed me that now, the train is running ON TIME! Not canceled! My heart sang, and I felt this leg of my journey blessed by the goddess.
The middle leg of this ride was pure chaos! There were so many schoolboys on board, playing music loud and I SWEAR their Scottish accents were so thick I could not make out anything they were saying. I was very glad to have my headphones, listened to Gary Numan and Moonduo and watched the scenery go by.
It was terrifically blustery and chilly as I emerged from the train station. I was pretty content with checking in to my room and staying put, as it had been a very long day. I had a cup of tea and a biscuit, watched a little TV on my phone, and went to sleep.
I had booked myself two things for the next day, a guided tour of Dunnottar Castle (two train stops south of Aberdeen in Stonehaven) and high tea afterwards, also in Stonehaven. So an early night was just the thing!
