After a long hiatus I remember to post here again! Survived the heat of Comrades and now looking forward to the cold of Hoy for the half. At least Kirkwall is looking bright and sunny just now, and not even windy!
Book your accommodation early for Loch Ness 330. Tends to get a bit busy here that weekend!
I was on a night out in Inverness a few years back on the evening before the Marathon. A heavily laden couple stopped me outside the station and asked for directions to the nearest hostel in halting English. I'm not sure how much they understood of my effort to explain that they had picked the wrong weekend to wing it in this city!
