Sitting here in the hotel lobby free WIFI hotspot in Fort William after a lovely train trip yesterday then a little bit if a disaster- but more of that in the next blog. Here's a bit of catch up.

Back to the mainland! Highland dancing night!

... 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!

Photos for this (and all Scotland posts) will be up within a week, so check back soon.

Thanks for reading,

... clouds that were gathering. In the distance, the mountains (or Cullens) of Skye dominated the views ahead and to our right, the rolling hills and peaks of Moidart feasted the eyes in that direction. We also came across flocks of feeding manx shearwaters and arctic terns giving testament to the productivity of the seas in this area. By 6 o'clock we were in the Sound of Arisaig and approaching Loch nan Ceall. I will quote verbatim from the ...
