Our final day in Oban
July 23, 2016 - Oban, United Kingdom
Oban has given us some wet and overcast days and some brilliant days but all of them have been enjoyable in retrospect. There have been some times when we thought we had done the wrong thing but we found places to go that avoided the worst of the Scottish summer and when we needed it the sun shone through. Today the sky was overcast but promised to be reasonable so we went for a walk up to the hill overlooking the town to visit McCaig's Tower. Apparently McCaig was taken with Roman...

A round trip to Glencoe
July 22, 2016 - Oban, United Kingdom
We had managed to move the car into a safe spot in the back of the hotel's tiny car park last Sunday and it had remained there up until now. Today we decided we would drive to Glencoe and plotted a route that would take us down to Kilmartin first to have a look around the area and perhaps the museum before heading to Inverlochy and up the Glen Orchy road to then head for Glencoe and return via Appin and Connel Bridge. After a few tries we managed to programme our route into Miss Direct and...

A trip to Iona Abbey
July 21, 2016 - Oban, United Kingdom
Ah ha. Another day, another weather pattern. Before we went down to breakfast this morning the clouds looked higher and the waters of the bay were glassy smooth. Looks like Margaret has managed the weather and the travel schedule perfectly. We needed to be at the Ferry Terminal by 9:45am to begin our trip to Iona so we tucked a few things into our backpack. Things like nibbles, jackets, and cameras but no umbrella. Margaret is very pleased with her hooded rainjacket and was willing to leave...

And so much for the weather
July 20, 2016 - Oban, United Kingdom
Well summer doesn't last long in the highlands and islands. Yesterday was the beginning and the end of summer. It ended with a bang ... a thunderstorm indeed. Today it is wet but maybe not as cold as it was. We slept in for a bit then had a late and leisurely breakfast (I seem to recall saying that before). Discussion at breakfast ruled out another trip to Tobermory which had been tentatively planned on our way home last night. We resolved instead to look at train and bus timetables and take...

Visiting the Puffins
July 19, 2016 - Oban, United Kingdom
Well, well, well! What a difference a day makes. Today dawned misty but fine and looked like a good day from the start. We had to get to the Craignure Ferry by 7:25am and that meant a 20 minute walk. We had arranged to get an early continental breakfast at 6:30 and met the Night Manager, David who had everything sorted for us and two other groups. We had packed fruit, chocolate bars and drinks in our backpack as there would be nowhere to get food on the trip. To that little supply we added a...
