I took about a week away from Chagford to use my Brit Rail Pass and to visit Scotland.
I took the Flying Scotsman from London to Edinburgh.
Lots of snow along the way.
I just spend a few days in Edinburgh, mostly wandering around during the day and drinking beer in the evening.
Lots of narrow lanes, steep hills and beautiful views.
I went cross country skiing in the Cairngorms, north of Edinburgh.
A break from skiing.
Somewhere along the way I met these two nice women. They had a rental car and were kind enough to invite me to travel with them.
Deer on the way to the Isle of Skye
My new friends were very accommodating when it came to destinations. My sister had a Skye Terrier when we were young, so I was determined to visit the Isle of Skye
Skye - My new friends drove me back to Edinburgh via Glasgow. From there I headed back to Chagford to collect my stuff, say farewall and begin my overland adventure to Asia.
