And so this is the end of our little 'Highland Fling'. In total we have driven over 1630 miles, travelled by car, bus, plane, train and boat, taken 6500 photos (between us), visited over 100 unique places, covering everything from castles to stately homes, a distillery to a lighthouse and everything in between. Our favourite part has definitely been travelling around in the Highlands and seeing some stunning landscapes, this has only ...

We normally went down to Sunderland every year, and some of them would come up to stay with us too. It has been many many (too many) years since I have seen them, my fault for which I am sorry. I got in touch with my cousin Dorothy via FB and asked if she would ...
