      We arrived at Fort Augustus on Loch Ness.

      This unit is the best it has a heated pool, a pool table and ping pong.
      There is also a gym, and finally SNOW.

      There is a also a soccer field full of snow and a garden next to Loch Ness.
      I started to build a snowman. But it was to hard. So I gave up.

      Also I forgot to say that our apartment was an old armory area that we live in.

      And the cool thing is that the area we live in use to be a fort and a monastery, and the place we live in is the old armory, pretty cool.

      When we got there as soon as we unpacked we ran to the snow and we found a snow man we kicked its head off and broke the body until there was nothing left and we left his remains beside our small unfinished snowman.

      ... calves and a couple of them got quite excited when a very large hiking party crested the hill and started walking toward them. Lots of loud low bellows and fake charges - very impressive.

      We eventually turned back so we would be sure to make our train. We picked up our suitcases at the hostel and got to the train station, had lunch at the tea shop, and boarded the train on our way to Oban, once again on the coast.

      The forecast for the forthcoming 24 and 48 hours was for winds from the North, F4-5, backing Westerly and then South-Westerly increasing F7. We were keen to move on out of the Mull area and having already updated the Blog and stated our intent to do just that, we decided to leave, knowing that we would have to flog upwind at least some of the way. Our destination was to be Arisaig harbour on Loch nan Ceall, on the mainland and just south of ...
