    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!!

    John O'Groats

    November 10, 2019 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 6 °C

    So we came to John O Groats to drop off the little stone at the signpost. We didnt take many photos as we've been here quite a few times now. Small as it is, it's worth a visit. Theres a fabulous Bistro called Stacks. Its named after the stacks at Duncansby Head. The lighthouse is the most northerly point. The views are of the Orkney. The camera doesnt do it justice though. You can stay overnight in the Village car park. Theres now a charge of £2 for the entire day/night. It's to help local heritage though.
    Fingers crossed someone picks up the rock soon and takes it on a journey. Tourists from all over the world visit. Even in Winter!

    Sunrise at Nybster Broch

    November 10, 2019 in the United Kingdom ⋅ 🌙 4 °C

    My favourite place! I could live here! Up at 0700 first light ready for sunrise at 0750. The sun didnt disappoint but it was super windy and bitterly cold.

    From Glencoe to Nybster

    November 9, 2019 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☀️ 4 °C

    After a long but beautiful drive across some of the worlds finest scenery, we arrived in Nybster at the Broch at approx 1900hrs. We stopped off at several locations, had fish and chips in Golspie and even watched a full firework display in Wick, along the way.Read more

    Good morning, Deer

    November 9, 2019 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☁️ 1 °C

    Abso-bloomin-lutely freezing! 0700hrs -5 out trying to photograph a herd of deer which had settled about 50m from the van. I had to wait till the sunrise to get enough light for the video 🤦🏻‍♀️
    Its snowing up on the Ben but nothing forecast at ground level today. After breakfast, we'll head north east up past Fort Augustus, Caledonian Canal into Loch Ness and on to Inverness.

    Loch Tulla Viewpoint

    November 8, 2019 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 1 °C

    This is the most spectacular view south of Glencoe. Tourist buses stop here all day long with people from all over the world. We call it the No "eye" Deer viewpoint after a conversation with some American tourists. That's a good story for another time 🤭
    More photos tomorrow morning of the deer and views! First night with the swivel seat in action. Threw my handmade crochet blanket on it.... is it quirky enough now? 😂😂
