      We booked a "Family Room" at the hostel and they gave us "The Flat": a 2 floors flat wit 2 bedrooms (2 bunks in any room), bath with shower, huge living room with table and sofas, complete kitchen for us only.
      Excellent stay for us

      ... We'll we didn't miss it & we got on the right one so all in all. Very successful! The trip up was very pretty. Lots of lochs. We walked down to the town & I had fish & chips -the pensioner special and I still couldn't eat it all. Off to Iona ...

      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.

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

      The magic of Scotland!

      ... we reached there but we had fun exploring the loch and its surrounds. Once we reached Fort William we explored the ruin of the nearby 13th-century Inverlochy Castle. Not massive by any means, Cory and I still had fun climbing up the walls and looking out to the River Lochy.

We do a quick intro then agree to meet down at the Caladonian Hotel. Karlyn gets to meet Donald and his partner Jaclyn and their 2 sons Callum and Innis. Great afternoon chatting, with a few quiet drinks. We leave the relos to go for a stroll around Oban. What a beautiful day, sun's out so we have an ice-cream and stroll around ...

      ... mountains are so rugged & barren. back down along the banks of Loch Lomond - where our journey began!

      Checked into Glasgow Airport Holiday Inn Express - the room was very modern compared to to past week of quaint bed & breakfasts. Hubby not really interested in going into Glasgow after long mountainous drive. Relax in room and have pizza. No rain all day - just cloudy.
