          Amazing hostel located in an old church. The beds were comfortable and the location great.

          ... a new experience. Because we are into the winter season, the first ferry to Mull was not until 10 am, we had a leisurely breakfast at the boarding house, starting to chat and get to know the others on the tour. Cheryl and I have made an obvious connection with the German woman travelling on her own, and that is a good thing. We sat and chatted with her on the first 45 minute ferry. Once on Mull, we had ...

The Oxfam and the British Red Cross stores weren't that great and then we walked down to the other end of Oban and brought pastries for the next day's breakfast. J got tired and decided to go back to the hostel to nap and I decided to stay out and wander. I ended up going into a soap store, a bunch of gift ...

          ... at Dunstaffnage Castle; a castle built atop an immense black rock built in the 13th century. The castle is smaller than what we've seen, but no less impressive; with the ruin of a 13th century chapel nearby. The boys once again clamber over the ruins and climb up the steep spiral stairs to the castle ramparts. The views of the Scottish coast are spectacular. In the distance you can see what we think is the Isle of Mull or ...

          ... a place I had emailed and made reservations with months earlier. It was about 20 minutes up the road, in a very small and remote town on the Isle of Arran called Pirnmill. The restaurant was called The Lighthouse. You could see the ocean from the restaurant. I felt awkward because I was the only one there at a table by myself. But the food was excellent and the service was very good. I had fish and chips (again but delicious!). I also had a dessert which she recommended. I forgot the name ...

          Our last major stop was in Glencoe where we took the ski lift to the top of the mountain to be able to gaze on the splendor of the valley floor below. The day was still bright and sunny so our long-sleeve shirts were all that was needed and that mainly to keep from blistering. We next passed through the valley where the massacre of the McDonald clan occured. Seems Clan Campbell crept into their home during the dead of night and ...
