    So sad, but also grateful to have arrived home, after two near misses. One particularly bad with an Aygo overtaking us head on into the path of ongoing traffic. Absolutely terrifying. If we hadn't have slammed on the brakes, none if us would be here. Ironically, we sat behind them for 35 miles after that!

    A great wee trip nonetheless and back to the diet tomorrow 🤦🏻‍♀️Can't wait for the next one!

    Time to go home

    January 2, 2020 in the United Kingdom ⋅ 🌧 5 °C

    Torrential rain and howling wind last night and this morning. We were all cosy inside, feeling quite smug until we had to leave and found half a foot of water outside the door 🤦🏻‍♀️
    We'd have stayed a bit longer in Skye but were worried the bridge might close due to the winds.
    We've stopped in Glengarry for brunch. It was hard to find a lay by that wasnt flooded but finally we managed!

    Skye - The best way to spend NYD

    January 1, 2020 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☁️ 6 °C

    This morning, after Lilly surprised us with a long lie, we crossed the Skye bridge into Kyleakin and parked up so that Lilly could have a good walk. Shes not been happy this trip and has been quite noisy due to lack of exercise. She had a good swim in the sea and then I walked her round the coast to Maol Castle. Ruins dating back to the 1400's.

    We then moved on to where we are now, a little place on the park4night app. It's got a bit of a view of Portree and surrounding hills, with just sheep and cows for company. Blowing a Gale, but not inside 🤗

    2019/2020

    December 31, 2019 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 1 °C

    We settled in for the night near Eilean Donan castle in Kyle. We've tried to park in this spot before, but theres always been someone there. It really is lovely but only for an overnight. Theres no footpath so you cant walk anywhere along the busy A87.
    As usual, I took far too many photos, but got some great ones. We managed to stay awake for the bells and locals had a bit of a firework display at the castle. Perfect start to 2020!

    We've probably spent more nights at this viewpoint than anywhere. At just an hour from home, when we wake up, it feels like we already have a head start on our journey. No two days are the same out here and I will always take photos when we come.

    Getting ready to move on, but unsure to where. We are never too concerned on these short trips, because everywhere is great!

    We're Home!

    November 12, 2019 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 9 °C

    Well, we arrived back home to find all of my snails and some of my tropical fish dead. I must have turned the heater off by mistake. Sad to be home now because we always have such a brilliant time!
    Here are the last few snaps of the trip!

    Going home

    November 12, 2019 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☁️ 4 °C

    Driving home on A86 to Spean Bridge then on to Fort William. All this beautiful scenery is just a couple of hours drive from Helensburgh. We feel really lucky every time we come out. I took a couple of photos of the nature trail before we left.
    We couldnt drive past the Roy Bridge Dam without a few photos though.

    High road home

    November 11, 2019 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ❄️ 0 °C

    We left Nybster after a very stormy night around 0900hrs. Currently on the A9 driving through Cairngorms National Park. Its snowing lightly. We'd never come home this way before so it's all new. We're not sure where we'll stay tonight yet.
    We climbed up to 1256ft just before Aviemore Ski Resort where they'll be getting excited about the first snow.
    So sad to have to come home, especially when it's my birthday on Wednesday. 49? There must be some mistake!!
