Thanks, I had no transport to travel to Ardrossan for the 7am ferry and didn't have a booking for the next ferry, so wouldn't be guaranteed a place on that. So planned to leave the house at 5am at a nice gentle pace to get there for about 6.30 and get on ferry. Trouble was, I woke at 4am to get ready and get a massive bowl of porridge down me, heard the rain outside so took one look at the rain radar and realised it was waaay to hazardous to get to Ardrossan in the torrential rain (attached screenshot - the yellow and red stuff was heading straight across my route), so it never happened. Rain wouldn't have gone off til about 8am and that appears to have been what happened so glad I put it off.
Arran will always be there, I'll hopefully get this done by the time the timetables change in the autumn lol.
