Stage 2: Edinburgh to West Scotland

Stage 2 is going to be tricky. I have chosen to "go round Britain" properly and go over the top of Scotland which involves the treacherous Pentland Firth. In the right conditions it will be fine, but I may have to wait for the right conditions so timing and weather is going to be critical.

I returned from home on Sunday 10th May. From the train I was able to relive the last few days of stage 1 as I got a good view of Holy Island, went through Berwick-upon-Tweed which I missed by boat and past Dunbar. Hang on, that's where my boat is! Oh well, the train was going straight for Edinburgh and I then had to reverse back to Dunbar!

So, the story is taken up in my first passage note: Dunbar to Montrose
