We arrived at Fort Augustus at just after 11am, and decided that we were all hungry. So we found a little place that did food. Unfortunately, it was so little we couldn't all fit in it - so we found a bigger place that we could all fit in. We sat in the garden of the food establishment, and had various burgers and cups of coffee. If you have never tried a various burger, I recommend it; you never know what you are going to get. it's like food Russian roulette.
Having eaten, we took a short walk to exercise Jack, and to find a local pub that the Jack looker-afterers (myself, Ben's son Cain, and Ben's brother Martin) could wait in while the short ceremony took place. We were very fortunate to find a pub that accepted dogs at the bar, so we went in. Typically, Jack said that he had left his wallet in his other coat (an excuse I'm sure), so I bought a round. I decided to throw caution to the wind, and bought myself my first ever pint of Guiness. Moments later, the wind threw caution back at me, but I managed to duck out of the way. Unfortunately the caution hit a young couple smack in the face as they walked in through the door to the pub. The stopped in their tracks, looked around for a bit, and then decided to find another pub. Jack meanwhile was becoming more and more agitated. There was another dog in the pub, and Jack kept trying to get near it - presumably to beg a fiver off it in order to get a drink. Jim had no choice but to take Jack back to the car. When he returned, it was time for him and Leigh to go get married. they set off with Ben and Richard who were to be witnesses.
