Continuing a marathon bus journey across the UK from the mainland’s northernmost point to its westernmost takes BOB HIND from Cumnock to Stroud
It’s cheaper with a Megarider
A cold and frosty morning and I have been assured by Stagecoach Customer Relations that the 06:25 from Cumnock bus station, where I am now waiting, to Sanquhar does, in fact, continue through to Dumfries, although the timetable shows two separate journeys. The first bus to Kilmarnock, from a deserted bus station, is driven by the same driver who dropped me here last evening. He waves madly at me and probably wonders what I am getting up to at this hour.
