Highland Schools Tour: Warm Reception in Ullapool

Day 2 - Ullapool to Gairloch
Distance travelled = 55.5 miles = 89.3 km

Earlier today we were welcomed into Ullapool with a very enthusiastic crowd of S1-S2 students. A knowledgeable bunch, all itching to get involved with the demos (or 'volunteering' Mr H for the finale!).

On the way from Ullapool to Gairloch, saw some enormous trees...

...turns out they're Canadian Redwoods. Amazing.

Attempted to cross the deepest Gorge in the UK but (fortunately!) the suspension bridge was closed for 'maintenance'. Oh well...

Checked in to the Myrtle Bank Hotel with rooms overlooking Loch Gairloch. Stunning.

Swung by Gairloch High School in preparation for tomorrow's early start - another spectacular school roof.

Two lectures to deliver tomorrow, both with big audiences (>100).

Caught up with Ken's former colleagues from his research days at Glasgow University, talking shop.

Another successful dinner outing as Trout forces Salmon to Na Mara fish restaurant. Delicious! :-)
