          ... of over an hour with gorgeous scenery to reach the ferry to Iona. In the summer they run every 20 minutes, but now only once an hour. It was only a 10 minute ferry ride, and we were on Iona about 12:45. It is a very small island, only 3 miles long and maybe 1.5 miles across. Famous for the Abbey first established by St. Columba who arrived on the Island from Ireland in the mid sixth century. We toured ...

Anahied and I enjoyed the fortitude of the bagpipe competitors who played continuously throughout the day ignoring the driving wind and rain. Adam did not appreciate the bagpipes but was quite pleased with the fudge he bought. I actually had a surprisingly good pizza and Avi enjoyed the people and dog ...

          Back to the mainland! Highland dancing night!

          This morning we had to leave even earlier than usual to get to the ferry in time to take us back to the mainland.

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 ...

          (Angela) Couldn't believe our luck, another glorious day of blue skies and sun. We were joined for breakfast on our veranda by a kaka, a large friendly parrot who was keen on our cashew nuts. It even tried to walk into the bedroom. By the way, did you know all parrots show a 'handedness', like humans, but most parrots are left handed as opposed to right handed. This kaka was keen to learn too, it managed to 'guess' which hand the nut ...

          ... the road for the full 6km - though having said that - there were times when the trucks & buses felt like they were going to hit us & we were on a footpath - their wing mirrors felt very close!

          The whole way had been fantastic as the cycle route that we were on was an old train route which went through some wonderful forests full of beech which had heaps of babbling streams singing just for us as well as circling out onto the ...
