Day 56 Udny Station to Ellon
Udny station is a station in name only these days. All that remains of its former glory is a long platform hidden by undergrowth. The railway lasted for 100 yrs as a railway but, luckily for cyclists and strollers, carries on at a slower pace under human power.
Udny to Ellon has been an easy, short, stroll. We have had no dramas to deal with and our waterproof clothes have been zipped in their zipped compartments all day long.
Crossing the River Ythan into Buchan signals the near end of this particular stroll. It is difficult to believe that we shall stroll for just two days more.
Tomorrow Strichen where:
As I get doon by Strichen toon
I heard a fair maid mournin’
She was makin’ sair complaint
For her true love ne’er returnin’
Although in our case this is not true as we have the honeymoon suite tonight, if our jolly waitress is to be believed.
