      Ester weekend with two holidays.. four days with sunny whether was unique combination for holiday in Scotland. Initial thoughts were to take camping vacation and relax in wild nature. But it was not suppose to happen. Few friends joined and plans changed to sight seeing around Oban.

      Finding right accommodation was next difficult task …

      ... valley Allan played some bagpipes music, starting with amazing grace. It was pretty surreal looking out the window at this dramatic scenery and huge mountains with the slow bagpipes music playing. Very cool! We stopped along the way to climb up a hill and get a great view of the valley, Glencoe. It was really pretty!

      This morning we said farewell to Edinburgh. After the rain last night, I am finally feeling a bit better. My hay fever has been pretty bad over the past days - not surprising given all the wandering through fields that we have been doing. It must be bad for many people as they give a hay fever update with the weather each night!! We drove up through the centre of the Highlands, past Perth (the Scottish one!), and then headed to the west coast. The ...

      ... edge of the road, but the tarmac was clear and didn't seem icy. So many shades of blue, brown and grey, as well as the white. The scenery was more breath-taking than the cold. The snow was thicker on the ground from Crainlarich up until the Green Welly Shop where it all but disappeared. This is where the road through Glen Coe and the Road to Oban meet. Yes, Logan Grace Tony Gail and Mum, you've been there. If you have look on the map ...
