Eventually left Neil to mercy of the AA and Bigginger. Rest of run fine apart from tub of butter melting over everything in boot.
Overpriced breakfast at Knutsford while others catch up. Neil is back on the road. Shouted at by farmer's wife for parking in wrong yard.
Crossed Forth RB. & arrived Glendevon YH (lovely place) without incident apart from niggles like squeaky dynamo and leaky damper.
