Journey: Preston, Glasgow, Ardrossan Harbour, Brodick
Start Point: Preston Train Station    
Distance: 250+ miles    
Time: 5 hours
Weather: Overcast
Comments: Despite a cancellation and two delays we managed to make the connections at Glasgow and Ardrossan Harbour. Fortunately we had booked seats between Preston and Glasgow as some people had to stand. After arriving at Dunvegan Guest House we explored Brodick and ate dinner at The 19th Hole, Brodick Golf Club. We found the guest house comfortable and convenient though we did have problems with the internet connection.
