Another Day at the Office

The School Minibus needs an MOT and it has to go to Dingwall 60 miles from the school, think its because its a long vehicle. Andy drove it there first thing but has to leave it there as there will be jobs to do on it, how does he get back? First the train from Dingwall to Achnasheen (our nearest station) a lovely scenic route. The first option was to be picked up by the Headmaster at dinner time, but that meant several hours in the middle of nowhere, so Andy took his trust push bike along too.

The start in Dingwall and the bike waiting for the train.
The station at Achnasheen, still with snow on the tracks

The start of the Journey on two wheels

It was a lovely bright still day, but cold - 2c to start the ride and better gloves would have been ideal. The views were stunning.

Several stops later and two and a half hours and Andy was back in time for his normal lunch. The longest ride for over 18 months and a hilly one too, glad it was not the full 60 miles, think that would have been too much, still not a bad morning at work.
