      Back to the mainland! Highland dancing night!

      A travel blog entry by nicolapollard on Nov 01, 2014

      This morning we had to leave even earlier than usual to get to the ferry in time to take us back to the mainland. By catching the ferry instead of driving to the bridge we saved a lot of time and meant we could see more during the day. Our first stop was another Harry potter reference, the place where dobby dies in the movie. It's just a small beach but was a cute little area. From there we drove along the 'road to the isles' which was stunning scenery! As we drove ...

      ... it was time to deal with the Downton Abbey one: Inverary Castle or the home of the "highland relatives". It's still occupied by the Duke and Duchess of Argyll so it is a working house with changing exhibits in the public rooms. Serendipity entered the picture again as the MacMillan Clan was from this area as well so we said a little goodbye to Grandma and Grandpa on the edge of the Loch underneath the Castle. Just a bit up the road ...

      ... all day! A couple more camera stops and it was northwards to Oban for the night. A few laps of the town to firstly find the hotel and then the car park and we are still getting on! (Women are the best Navigators). A pleasant dinner and well earned Australian Shiraz sees the end to a good Downton day. Tomorrow is another busy one, which sees us off to the Isle of Mull via the local ferry (sick buckets or saucepans at the ready?) find out tomorrow! Until next ...

      ... William we came across 'Neptunes Staircase' a series of 10 locks. There was a yacht entering the top one, so we walked up to watch in progress through them. brought back memories of canal boating in 1987.
      We were leaving Fort William about 5.30 for the last 30 miles to Oban, when we saw a sign that said the road was closed at Conon - I think that was the name - it was the only ...

      ... dinner we met back up with her and searched for 3 hours for kiwis, with no luck. Disappointed but feeling we had given it a good try, we gave up and she went to bed, and we headed back to the hut to warm up by the fire. Then as everyone was sitting in the main area of the hut, one of the guys comes back in and says there is a kiwi right outside the hut. Charles got a look at him, but I was trying to grab my shoes and missed him :( at least one of us saw ...
