Today was the day we drove all the way up to the Eilean Donan Castle. We were super pumped and jumped in the car after a brilliant breakfast which we were sure would last until dinner time! Leaving Mambeg was done with mixed feelings because we really enjoyed the place.
The drive was long but the sights we saw along the way were …
... precisely five cups, bowls plates etc - the apartment sleeps five. There are only three glasses.
I have managed to get us moved out though so I've been packing our bags back up today as we are moving to join the rest of the band tomorrow.
Not a very exciting day today (Tuesday) and a nice days rest on the bus yesterday.
Tomorrow is Practice, followed by a visit to Glasgow for a concert and a competition called drumming for drinks.
We decided we couldn't wear the same clothes any longer, and found a launderette in Aviemore, where we put everything through the washer and dryer. What a treat! While that was happening we found a wonderful cafe, where it turned out the chef was from Temuka! Her selection of home-made baking treats was a sight to behold, and it is no wonder they have been nominated in the 'Scotland's Best Baker' ...

So after dinner we decided to take a chance and find somewhere else to kip down... there was another Britstop about 15mins down the road, so we hightailed it out of there and just on dark we found the carpark of the Speyside Centre - a fantastic spot well off the road in amongst a whole lot of trees. We had a much quieter night there, thank ...

We had an awful experience here. We were locked out of the hotel all night and had to go all the way into Inverness and spend the night there.

They also apologized over and over again. So it turned out ok.
