Magnificent Scotland

While we’ve been laid up awaiting a new rudder, we’ve been out and about enjoying Scotland… in our fancy rental van…

First we headed up past Oban, right up the Great Glen and then over to Ullapool. We went further north to Achiltibuie and climbed Stac Pollaidh – except we got stuck from reaching the top – needed serious rock climbing gear. We must have missed the correct route – it was foggy!

We encountered all types of weather and magnificent scenes in all sorts of moods. The Gorse was in full bloom – along with the Broom.
