50th Birthday Trip part 4 – Loch Lomond

Part 1 link, Part 2 link and Part 3 link Sunday 5th June – We travelled across from Gleneagles to Drymen, near Loch Lomond.

50th Birthday Trip part 3 – Glasgow and Gleneagles

Part 1 link and Part 2 link Friday 3rd June – I was an hour late leaving Susan’s to head to Glasgow, but the traffic wasn’t too bad so my husband, who had caught the train down to meet me, didn’t have to wait too long.

Western Isles Holiday – Isle of Lewis – part 3 inc a return to the Isle of Harris and visit to Great Bernera

If you missed part 1 or part 2 you may want to check those first. On Thursday we had a more relaxed day and less driving time.

Little did we know a global pandemic would have us move the holiday so many times. Finally last… Continue reading Western Isles Holiday – Isle of Lewis – part 1

Loch Fyne Holiday

Before I get started on our holiday I wanted to talk about how Scotland is divided up into areas. The area I live in is the Highlands, but within that I also live in an area called Ross-shire and within that a town. The area we visited is called “Argyll and Bute”. Now Bute is… Continue reading Loch Fyne Holiday

Isle of Mull Holiday

We are heading north from our week on the Isle of Mull. The second largest of the Inner Hebrides islands off the west coast of Scotland. The Isle of Mull is famous for the multi coloured houses in Tobermory, white tailed eagles and golden eagles and it is a very short ferry ride across to… Continue reading Isle of Mull Holiday

North West of Scotland – Polin Croft

We spent a week in a small cottage called Polin Croft, in a small hamlet called Polin. If you click the link you can see photos of its location on a map and photo. There were just a few houses around us and crofting land with some sheep and we saw some wild deer too.… Continue reading North West of Scotland – Polin Croft
