Set out today on a series of commitments at opposite ends of the diocese. Not good planning when distances are big – but you can’t get it right all the time. Another wonderful bright day – snow on the mountains and string quartets on the MP3 player. Took the Brompton folding bike in the [unrealistic] hope that I might cycle on a bit of the National Cycle Network which wanders all over the diocese. They must have known I was coming when they planned it. But I did get a look and will come back – just where the road to Cupar leaves the southern shore of the Firth of Tay, there is a wonderful little road which skirts the hillside above the shore – runs through Newport and Tayport – into the Forest Park just north of Leuchars and then to St Andrews along the route of the old railway. Another day, perhaps, particularly when the weather is warmer.
