8th October 1944 - Struan
Glorious morning. No breakfast. Across Grampians. Managed to get a loaf at Edendon, from a very slatterly ill mannered young woman!
Sheep. Herd of goats near Dalwhinnie. Top of Drumochter down into Invernessshire. Got cup of tea at lorry drivers’ place towards Newtonmore. Tea bad. First place I saw open since leaving
over 60 miles back. By now just gone
Clouds but no rain. Saw mill working on Sabbath.
Sometimes saw nothing in an hour. Mountains a wonderful indigo.
