    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

    ... on a rock. There were a lot more people here. Because it was lunch time and the ticket office was closed, we snuck though and avoided the £5 charge for the entrance. We get in, walk around, and climb to the top. We are loving Scotland so much already. We've been to the top of 2 castles already! 6. Oban - we get to our destination! Oban is this harbor town right on the water. It's famous for their seafood so immediately we look for a place to eat. We find a pub and order ...

    ... there were two available spaces on
    the bus at Glencoe for the short distance we were heading. Again, some very

    We decided to walk together the relatively short nine mile
    hike from King’s House to Kinlochleven. The West Highland Way goes through a
    stretch of upper Glen Coe past the dramatic peak of Buachaille Etive Mor, said

There is a sign above their front door very clearly saying 'NO HAWKERS OR CAMPBELLS", and they stick to it. Tonight we ...

    ... decided to retire early to bed after short walk around the city. Dinner was take-away food from Indian restaurant and it was just formality after long day. Everyone was fast asleep within no time hoping for another beautiful day.

    Next day was mostly reserved for sight seeing in and around Oban and visit to Stirling castle on way back home. McCaig's tower at heart of Oban is beautiful place overlooking Oban harbour and nearby islands. Contrary to ...

    ... into the shop to look at it and I was equally impressed at the price on a cashmere coat which cracked over the 1,000 pounds, though the material did feel very nice. I spotted a pair of wellie socks - I think that would be all I'd need - with them on I'd not need to wear the wellies. For those that don't know wellie is the Scottish word for gum boots.
