    ... straddling fast flowing streams, around deep lakes and into misty glens. The highland cattle mostly ignore us but the wooly sheep run away. Stags stand and stare. Here is where British commandos trained at Spean Bridge and where Hess was imprisoned when he flew to Scotland during the Second World War. The easy rhythm and clickety click make me totally relaxed. I can hear Graham Nash's 'Marrakesh Express'. But For Lyn it is more like ' Murder on ...

    ... could be very harsh indeed. Time for a bowl of vegetable soup and another cuppa on the waterfront as we waited for the rain to ease then we climbed the slippery slope back to our hotel. There is so much to see here that we wish we had allowed a few more days to experience it at our leisure. Maybe next time. This hotel is perfect for dozing while waiting for the rain to stop and we suspect we are not the first travellers in its 130 year history to have done just ...

    ... Yum. Best part, we got to keep our tasting glass as a souvenir! After all of our excursions we just went to 2 local bars for some drinks and food. The first, Tartan's Tavern, was really cool. We talked to the bartender for a while. Then we went down the street for some food. We have a long day tomorrow. Driving 3 hours to the Isle of Skye, in apparently crazy roads and weather. Then we are driving all around Skye for all of the scenes out there! I'm so excited I hope the weather ...

    By ferry and car from Islay to Oban on the Mainland. A bustling place...I think I was last there when I was 5, so I can't report on the changes really.
    A stunning day was promised, so we took a 3 Isles trip to Mull, Staffa and Iona....a great day out indeed.

    Dropped off at one end of Mull and then a rather hair-raising bus ...

    ... NZ, Hector stayed on Mull and may have married a girl from Oban, and the rest have disappeared; Donald, John, Hugh, Lachlan, and Angus. Emigration seems likely, but all of them? The museum does have OPRs (old parish register copies) for some churches, so I might go back again, if time permits. They are there in the 1841 census, but then vanish. The next census was after the potato blight and famine, but Neil stayed through all that, possibly because he was one of the ...
