    Excellent stay for us

    John & Jennifer have been given a large file of instructions and a big list of jobs. So hopefully they will have enough to keep them busy until our return. A big thank you to them for looking after the animals and house in our absence, we hope they enjoy Ashburton & Seil while we are away. But what will we be getting up to in the next 5 weeks? Watch this ...

    Day 77

    Susan dropped me back to Arivegaig shortly after 8. It would be a straightforward walk on a clear path and quiet road throughout. It was very mild with a slight drizzle to begin with. The drizzle gradually intensified during the morning. I had hoped to take time to walk down to the beach at Singing Sands but missed the turn-off.
    Despite a very dry ...

    ... returned us to our last ferry to Oban. (Sorry if this sounds more confusing than it was.) That last ride was a half hour longer, since there were some mechanical problems that were worked out. We just soaked up the warmth and the view of the Hebrides islands, got a quick dinner at a good tourist place on Oban's harbor, then drove on via the coastal route into the Highlands for our stay that night. This might have been one of our favorite days on the ...

    ... up to the second level which has views across to Mull. My first proper castle, no doubt a few more to come. Time for the final leg of the epic journey to the Outer Hebrides, a 5 hour ferry trip on the Clansman. For the princely sum of £34 I was able to get a ferry pass that would allow me to use all the ferries required to traverse the islands and return to the mainland. The first part of the journey passed through the Sound of Mull before heading out into ...

    ... then the sun came out making fabulous rainbows. Speaking of weather, my Cline weather Karma appears to be holding. Even when we do get rain, it usually moves past quickly, or only occurs when we are indoors. :) We arrived in Oban in the late afternoon. It is a very interesting seaport. Very rocky and ringed with hotels and restaurants. Oban is the port where ferries leave for the Isle of Skye and Iona. We didn't have time to do ...
