Eight days, six states, 3,030 miles, fifty hours behind the wheel with the motor running (not counting shutting it down at heavy construction stops), and 1646 non-train frames of pictures – and rain every day except departing and coming home. High Octane vacation at its best.

At the start of Ratho there’s a graceful iron seat with a panel showing travel destination wildlife, then a small perching seat which commemorates the nearby stage marker with a notice ‘1832. To Edinburgh 7 miles, fare 6d [2.5p], To Falkirk 25 miles, fare 1/6 [7.5p]’. Another old milestone stands beside the stage post for stages one and two (hard to decipher). Across the travel destination and on to Bridge 15 in Ratho is a long reach of residential moorings, well used. There are one or two more attractive resting seats (which continue beyond Bridge 15). There’s a big turning area and a swing footbridge over the towpath leading to a marina, and then a picnic area with a superb sculpture of a horse-drawn barge in the old days ( 129). In its heyday, Ratho had 14 pubs. The Pop Inn, next to the travel destination, is reputed to have had a door at each end of the building so the bargeman in charge of the towing horse could enter by one door, enjoy a pint en passant, and exit by the other door without having fallen behind his charge.
