    Hi all! Another spectacular day in the highlands of Scotland. We are LOVING this. We are in awe of the scenery we have experienced. Today we started 2 miles south of Tyndrum.We started on a good trail, which was an old military road. We got to the top of a pass to face Ben Dorain, which is considered a "munro" in this country, which means it is over 1000 meters. Oh, forgot to say at the very beginning of our walk we had the most fantastic view of ...

We had a beautiful Italian dinner on the pier before we headed back up the hill to bed, early start in the ...

The castle is smaller than what we've seen, but no less impressive; with the ruin of a 13th century chapel nearby. The boys once again clamber over the ruins and climb up the steep spiral stairs to the castle ramparts. The views of the Scottish coast are spectacular. In the distance you can see what we think is the Isle of Mull or ...

    (Angela) Another cloudless blue sky greeted us on waking. We left Dunedin bound for Invercargill. The scenery on the south east corner of New Zealand is so very Scottish, same landscape, same plants, but slightly higher summer temperatures. After stopping for coffee at Owaka we then saw a sign to The Lost Gyspy Caravan Curios. Thinking this was an antique shop we stopped for a browse only to find the most amazing place. Greeted by a hairy guitar strumming local who was ...

    ... of the coast of Oban. We enjoyed a nice evening and went out to eat and were hungry for beef so I got a steak and she got ribs. We then walked through the city. I had been up basically for 24 hours and crashed when we got back. Slept like a baby.

    We woke up today and had a great breakfast at our hotel. It was nice to be together and eat breakfast with each other again. We then went to a chocolate shop and enjoyed some great coffee ...
