A rest day in Sanquhar
Lowa has responded to my plight of drenched feet in their nearly new boots. They were shocked, saddened and more than a little embarrassed but they swung into action. Their experts and management team cleared their desks to deal with my problem, which is quite possibly a failure of the Goretex lining. Please return them to the retailer for inspection.
By then I’d taken decisive action and the train to Dumfries. There was only one boot shop: Mountain Warehouse. They don’t sell branded goods, just functional gear at low prices. I bought the best compromise between waterproof and no breaking in. We’ll find out soon enough whether that was a good idea.
I had sufficient time in Sanquhar, while waiting for the train, to visit the museum and inspect the famous knitted gloves.
