Quite a nice room, courteous staff, good breakfast - a bit too much fat for my taste. Tried haggis for the first time. I got to the breakfast buffet close to the end of service and the eggs were a bit rubbery, my fault for waiting so long. The fruit was watermelon, grapefruit, and plums. Hot buffet included all manner of sausages, ham, bacon, and other meats; including haggis. They had potato 'scones', very like the potato wedges you get at McDonald's. Check out time was 11, gave me time for a little nap.

... grass covered hills. It was easy to feel the invigorating and peaceful energy of the place. We caught the 2:30 ferry back to Mull and Ross drove us via the scenic route to Tobermory. Now a small fishing village, it had been a very active military port in the past and it is said that 3 Spanish galleons went down in the harbour during the Spanish Armada. We walked around the town and had a wee swallow at ...

Getting to Fort William from Glasgow is a four-hour train journey - a stunning, gorgeous, splendid climb into the highlands. Even if you don’t stay overnight at the Fort, book the trip just to see the landscape. Oddly enough, I ended up sitting next to a woman that I had befriended in the station. It was odd as it’s a large station, there are six tracks, and each train holds a lot of bodies. The fact that Carol and I had begun talking ...
... on the train. We arrived in Fort William, and decided to go to the grocery store to pick up dinner. Fort William is a really small town and we weren't sure how much we would find to eat near where we were staying. We got to our B&B and the lady set us up a table to have our dinner. After dinner we went for a walk to see the medieval ...
... would hit the ceiling, and I had to bend down. I could not wash my hair that way. I am only here one night, so I will try again at the next place. Please have mercy I hope and pray the next place has at least a decent water flow from the shower! I would never give my guests such a low water flow. They must be cheapos or something. It rains constantly in Scotland, why can't they spare some water! I will definitely laugh about this later. I am chuckling now as I type it too. ...
... and chip shops and the West Highland hotel restaurant, but our place looked the best to us.
The menu was full of fresh seafood - haddock, halibut, prawns, laugustinas, etc, but I was in the mood for a steak. Gretchen got the seafood salad. Both were amazing.
For dessert, I had a shot of single malt Lagavullin. Exquisite!
As usual, bedtime came early - 10pm I think.
