          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

          Day on Mull and Iona

          Yesterday was a day of ferries and islands. The weather was sunny, with clouds to add interest to every picture, and warm, about 14. The wind picked up in the afternoon and was invigorating. When we were getting on the small ferry from Iona back to Mull, the combination of rising tide and strong wind meant we had to hop onto the ferry ramp between wave swells, as we would have had very wet feet otherwise. ...

          ... A few more drinks and its off to walk the city heading to Soho. We never make it but find our selves n Carnaby Street and katie gives us a guided tour.

          ... stunning and varied as we drove through wide and narrow valleys, along lochs and past mountains that still had some snow on them. The roads continued to be one lane at times and I'm not convinced that it is a great idea for tour buses to be travelling those routes- even when there is one lane each way, their width encroaches over the lane of the oncoming traffic! I saw a number of signs encouraging good manners on the roads, including suggestions to ...

          The shower here was good though, versus many others. So I was thankful for that. There was also a really cool cat here that came to say hi to me as I was getting my stuff from my car.

          This day was a good day though. My hike to the Lost Valley was successful, and I got to see Glen Etive, all in good weather. I was thankful.

It was literally right next to the road we were driving on. She was born in a small bedroom above that post office. They took us to their favorite hotel for a great fish and chip supper. A perfect end to a perfect day. Hard to believe that any day can top the previous one. Every adventure is unique and the best ...
