Pushing from the front. Pushing from the back. Gunning it while two people stood in the trunk surrounded by camera equipment in order to strategically weigh it down. We even ‘borrowed’ a few fence posts to put under the groundless wheel.
After many failed attempts to solve the ‘rental car in a ditch somewhere in the Highlands’ situation, three brawny Scotsmen on bicycles miraculously appeared and proceeded to push the car back onto the road. Needless to say, we were very grateful. And we put the ‘borrowed’ fence posts back where they belonged.
Obviously, after all that drama, we were in need of a pint, so back to the Dores Inn it was. We bumped into Ronnie once again, and then we all made our way to see Steve Feltham.
We found Steve sitting on the front deck of his converted mobile library / home. He was busy making Nessie figurines out of fimo and beach rocks to sell to tourists and keep his 20-year quest afloat financially, albeit modestly. So we walked up and introduced ourselves. But Steve already knew we were coming, thanks a few phone calls from around the loch.
