Stirling and Scotland statistics

We’re on the motorway from Scotland to Wales. Zooming along to the next section of our trip. The last few days stand as an interlude between the Highlands road trip and a week in the UK visiting friends and family. On the way to Stirling from Inverness we called into Aviemore to buy a pair…

Inverness

After our 10 day road trip up the west coast of Scotland we have two nights in Inverness to regroup, wash the dirties and re-pack the bags. We are staying at a great little studio overlooking the River Ness. I sit in the picture window in the kitchen, typing and people watching, sipping my beer…

Kyle of Tongue

We sit at the window of our B&B, overlooking this most amazing estuary, or Kyle of Tongue, complete with seals.

2. Iona

A wild and blustery drive through the wilds of the Isle of Mull along a single lane road that winds around lochs and ocean and rocky outcrops. Dodging sheep and cows, buses, cars and trucks, falling rocks, whilst looking for whales and otters and deer. The drive took almost two hours through the most stunningly…

1. Tobermory

We arrived in Scotland to drizzle and cold and all I could think about was sunny, warm Germany and the camper trailer. However, when we awoke at the Holiday Inn the next morning the sun was desperately trying to break through. So we go to pick up our hire car and cannot believe the colour……
