Book 52 for 2009

From the Mull to the Cape by Richard Guise

Travel book, chronicling the author's bike ride from the Mull of Kintyre to Cape Wrath, which I read aloud to Rob.

The style is amusing and engaging and the historical anecdotes about the places he passes through are fascinating - I for one didn't know that Scotland also had a Potato Famine.

Rob was rolling his eyes at the amount of walking up hills done by the author though, having cycled some of the southern part of the route himself.
