London 2012 - Olympic Torch to pass 'near-ish', but not through, Nairn

The detailed route to be taken by the Olympic Torch as it is carried around the UK later this year prior to the Opening of the London 2012 Olympic Games has been published yesterday and a summary page can be found here.

Although the Olympic Torch will not pass through Nairn, it will pass reasonably close by on two days - Saturday 9th June, travelling from Glasgow to Inverness and Monday 11th June, travelling from Stornoway to Aberdeen (both linked files are in .pdf format).

You can search for the names of the Torchbearers so far announced on the London 2012 website here - by name, location or date.

As I wrote last November, when the approximate route to be followed by the Olympic Torch was announced, I am not going to be in the UK during much of this period, but will certainly be following its progress from afar.
