  4. Dear Simon
    It sounds amazing that you are going to dash the distance in 10 days by bike. We do B&B if it is of interest and might be able to put you up if you are passing through Drymen. You could phone us to let us know when you or if you will be looking for B&B nearer the time.
    We have a web site:
    for more details.
    Good luck with your bike trip. IF you have time to stop for lunch then I would recommend the Clachan Inn in the middle of Drymen village. It is not necessary to book for
    Our Wireless Mesh network is still going strong on ADSL.
    Kind regards
    David & Frances
    Thanks David – will look into the lunch option – I have my beds booked now… if I can reach them all by nightfall! if you get a late and lonely knock, you’ll know who it is!
    Really pleased about the mesh network.
    Regards, Simon

  5. Unable to be in Okehampton today. The main street is full of pubs. Keep up the good travelling!
