Day Six - Southward Ho!

A travel blog entry by needlemind


At this point of the year the sun doesn't really set for long in the more northerly reaches of Scotland, meaning that if you are so inclined you can get up really early and venture out with a camera (or two). Or, if you're equally inclined you can stay in bed fast asleep. I'll let you figure out which of us got up, and which of us didn't. An excellent and very large breakfast followed, which stood us both in good stead for the day ahead. Part of ...

The haggis is very unique but tasty and the meat pie was basically stew with a large puff pasty. We walked around the city for a bit and them ended at Salsa Bar for a few drinks. Shots were £1.50!

Chris had a really hard time trying to understand him and I understood ...

Oban to Castlebay

A travel blog entry by cbail32


... which is covered by the most delicious lichen. Looking ahead you can see the castle ruins, looking back you have a vista of the town of Oban. The funny thing is that I only found out about it by accident, it's hardly mentioned in most of the guides. Anywhere else and it would be big news but not here. There have been McDougals here since 1164 although the castle was in existence a couple of hundred years previous to that as the seat of the King of Dalriada. You ...
