Apart from the Bridge in this photo - this is wild Scotland....emphasised even moreso by the winter weather and lack of summer tourists!

Aye, many times I have crossed that bridge, on motor-cycle and motor car, on my way to Ballachuilish and beyond. I much prefer this route to the North, the Quicker way is up the A9, but this is the way to take your time and glory in the Glory!!

Many thanks for the memories Sheena-Ann

Hi Mike..

Glad you enjoyed the photos on my site. I have just managed to stop using a wheelchair after four years or so... Question..How did you manage on the Jacobite? I found the carriages were really narrow, high up with a big gap at stations, and there aren't any special facilities for disabled people on the train. Neverthe less..,.it's a great run and a brilliant experience and I'd recommend it to everyone! Hope you had as much fun as we did! (I nearly got hung taking photos fromthe rear coach of the viaduct, especially when I said that I hadn't read Harry Potter - or seen any of the films!!!) I thought I was about to get lynched!!!

the rear coach of the train - not the viaduct!!

AQH, the question everyone thinks was spolved with DDA '96 ! As you know from your experiences, not everyone has disabled access-even some new buildings have outward opening doors! 9 the blind society I frequent has one which pushes you back down the ramp, if you are not quick enough, a large step throws you AND chair onto the pavment!)

THE TRAIN COACHES, well, I had to get out of Betty-Ku9the chair) fold it up, then a burly scot in kilt carried it into the carriage, meanwhile I was 'assisted' to my seat!, a bit of a disorganised do, but I got to ride the Jacobite, and at Mallaig, Carl was dressed as the enginer driver, sat in the drivers position and well treated! he is a total train buff, so that was a fine experience.

Congratulations on leaving your chair, well done!

I love the independence I have recovered through my chairs, could'nt go back!

I am beginning to rattle on like the Jacobite now, it's maybe time to say cheerio for now!!

Cheers M'dear mike
