Day 41 (May 13): Fort William

Weather today in the northern Highlands was stormy -- yup, not just a bit of rain, but a LOT of rain and a LOT of wind plus cold temps.  Stay-inside day.  We braved the storm to walk to church in the morning, and then spent the rest of the day in our lodge room, resting, reading, playing cards, watching Scottish TV.  Fortunately there is a Tesco Metro and a Morrison's in town and our lodge has a small kitchen and dining room for guests so we didn't have to eat all our meals in a restaurant while we were in Fort William.

Our plans for today had included a gondola ride partway up Ben Nevis but due to the weather that will have to wait for another time.
