Rich has been a victim of the unreliable British train service tonight: two cancelled trains in Glasgow have forced him on a bus replacement all the way to Tyndrum. In spite of this, he's changed his start time to 9am GMT.
The forecast is looking pretty Baltic for the morning with temperatures not much warmer than 2ºC and a low of -6º in places!
He plans to ride to a bothy every day of his trip to raise the chances of a better night's sleep. That said, he'll be riding through plenty of darkness as Scotland's daylight lasts just 7.5 hours per day.
So, we'll cosy up in our warm beds tonight and Rich will relish his last one for a week. Let's see what the next seven days brings - we can't wait to follow his dot!
