    Heute ging es bei Regen weiter nach Glenfinnan, wo das berühmte Harry Potter Viaduct steht. Aber auch sonst hatte der Ort und die Umgebung einiges zu bieten und die Sonne kam pünktlich zur Ankunft etwas raus ;)

    Farewell to Skye, farewell to Scotland.

    August 31, 2018 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☀️ 59 °F

    Friday morning dawned bright and beautiful, making it hard to leave. But, it's time to make our way back to Edinburgh and then home. We reversed our steps, taking the ferry back to the mainland, then boarding the train back to Glasgow. This time, our journey was in sunshine instead of rain. Overall, we've had more dry days than wet, so we've been lucky. Even more fortunate to have the clear days in some of the most beautiful places, Oban, Iona and Skye. However, Scotland is lovely almost everywhere.

    The people have also been very friendly, once we made the first move. Everywhere we went, we found the Scots very willing to offer help when we asked for directions or other information. We will have many great memories (and over 1200 photos!). We wouldn't hesitate to return, but Dennis would probably prefer to leave all of the driving to someone else!

    Jacobite train day 53 Thu 14 Jun 2018

    June 14, 2018 in the United Kingdom

    Rained and windy all night. Jacobite steam train today from Fort William to Mallaig return an 84 mile trip in total. We were in the last carriage of a seven carriage train pulled by a steam locomotive similar to the 3801 in Sydney. The carriage was wooden and the seat numbers were 13f and 14f meaning we faced forward across a shared table in the direction of travel towards Mallaig. As it was raining this was a good way to spend the day. The windows were fogged up and distance views were rain obscured however the strong wind prevented any fog from forming despite the steam from the engine from giving the occasional illusion of fog. The train stopped on the Glenfinnan Viaduct so we could take photos. (In Harry Potter films). The burns and rivers were raging and the coast was windswept, waterfalls everywhere. At Mallaig we had lunch in a pub waiting for the return train. Yvonne had local crayfish. The weather improved for the return trip, and the rain stopped. We saw three deer in woodland next to the train. At Fort William we looked at the old Fort site then did a walk following the river Loch to the Inverlochy Castle ruin. Then dinner, shopping and back to the Ben Nevis Guest House.Read more
