Day 2 Mad Ape journey report from James


I seem blessed with stunning weather whenever I venture North of Hadrian’s wall, and this week is no exception. Stunning views of mirror-like Loch Linnhe as I leave Fort William behind, followed in wonderfully slow succession by Glen Coe and Loch Lomond, and then the majestic descent to Glasgow of which we unwisely choose to navigate the centre… this knocked the stuffing out of the big fat APE controller but luckily help was at hand from the wonderful hospitality of evergreen Peter Whyman and positive (or is it negative) ions of world heritage site New Lanark on the Clyde. It means a 10-11 hour drive on the morrow, but after that it’ll be downhill…

The three charities that will benefit are: Treloar’s, which provides education and much more for disabled children,  Sense, the leading national charity for deafblind people, and WaterAid which is an international non-governmental organisation improving access to safe water, hygiene and sanitation in the 3rd World.
