Day 23 Monday, 21 March: I’m on the road again! Train from Bristol early this morning, back to Carlisle before midday. Cycled across the border and had my lunch near Gretna Green in a WW2 Nissen hut outside the Devil’s Porridge Museum. As you do. The first 40 Scottish miles to The Nith at Glencaple were straightforward enough. Heading west along the Dumfries & Galloway coast, flat(ish), moderate headwind, great views of the Solway Firth, this time from a Scot’s perspective, with the English mountains of the Lake District providing the backdrop. All going very well, but having thought I’d escaped the stress of decision making, I had to choose between Solway Salmon fillet with prawns or Highland Chicken stuffed with Haggis, wrapped in bacon in a creamy whiskey sauce. Stress!
