... two lochs using narrow country roads to our next ferry stop. The drive was beautiful. Would have been better if it wasn't cloudy. We made one picture stop to photograph the tallest mountain in Great Britain, Ben Nevis, but the summit was lost in the cloud cover. The ferry ride to the Isle of Mull was only 10 minutes, and we didn't have to disembark this time unless we wanted to take pictures or use the WC. We then stopped ...

We then headed to a cool castle it was open for the public and we were allowed in only after Stewart agreed to keep us in the back pack and not scare the other customers but from wat we saw it was enormous and is still the family seat today. We headed back into Oban and had dinner and tomorrow we are heading back to Dundee and then off down to the south west coast of the uk.
Have fun All.
