Setting up for Day 2 at the RHS
It's day two of the Royal Highland Show and the sun is shining. I took the bus from Edinburgh this morning (no 98), they're running every 10 minutes and cost £5 return - the same price as the car parks, and considerably faster than negotiating your way in and out by car.
It's still quite quiet, and I've taken the opportunity to time how long it takes on foot from the BBC tent to the cattle shed where Fred hopes to milk a cow. I managed it in 5 minutes but it's dependent on the "livestock crossings" - gates which are shut to allow for all the show animals to get to and from the arenas. There are 2 on my route. There's quite a tight window for the cow milking and it still may fall through depending on whether the cows return from the show ground in time... so watch this space, or tune in to MacAulay and Co this morning.
