Rest day in Killin – Perthshire

After our hard day yesterday and with a deteriorating weather forecast we decided that a day off was called for so that we could rest our legs and also travel with the ‘van to a different location a bit further south. So it was that we found ourselves parked up in the village of Killin and ambling slowly through the main street in search of a decent café when out of the blue we literally bumped into three of our old colleagues and friends from QinetiQ in Malvern: Andy, Jonny and Colin. It had been years since we’d seen Jonny and Colin and they both looked really well. Andy we’d seen much more recently as we’d worked together at QinetiQ until Elaine and I left in October 2010. [Aside: Jonny, Jo, another friend of ours, and I completed a round of the Welsh 3000s a few years ago.]

    Truly a small world it is. The last time Lara and I were up in the highlands, we also ran into an old friend, twice in the same day, in two locations 50 miles apart.
    Weird.
