Day 54 Aberdeen

Even the carefree life on the open footpath must sometimes stop in order to do the admin. Today is admin day. Tomorrow we start the final furlong or final four days.
Good old Wetherspoon’s is providing this evening’s Wifi but typing on this mini phone is quite taxing as my fingers are too fat.

We spent quite a few hours working out how we would get from Aberdeen to Inverallochy with daily distances of about 12 – 15 miles each day. This plan was dependent on accommodation. After the first phone call our plans fell apart. New plan needed sharpish.

The new itinerary is a bit lop sided. Some days will be long and others short.

The last day, Sunday, will be from Strichen to Inverallochy. We decided ages ago that this would be the last day. Oddly, we both wanted this to be the last day without telling the other.

We have posted home to Inverallochy all the stuff we believe that we can manage without.
If the weather turns nasty then we shall freeze.

If all goes well tomorrow we will be in Udny, a village my spell check wants to call undie.
