          The staff was great. The bar lively with good food (and cute bartenders). The breakfast was good. I could not say anything bad -- it was worth every penny.

          ... the bars. ( Scots would say 'wee swalla'.) by then it was dark and we couldn't see anything on the drive back to our ferry. It was delayed by half an hour so we were a tired bunch when we got back to the mainland, and hungry. 8 of us went together to eat, beer and lamb shank restored me, but we didn't get back to our accommodation until after 10. So, that was yesterday. Leaving Oban this morning. Time for ...

          We stayed in a very nice Hotel in Edinburgh on Sunday night, had time for a walk along Princess Street and got excited about seeing more next Saturday. Monday, we met our tour group at 9 am, had an unexpected tour of Edinburgh as we had to return to Rabbie's shop for a replacement microphone for Ross, our guide. But, soon on the road west. We stopped numerous times for pictures and breaks, working our way around lochs, through small villages and then officially entering ...

          The next morning it was onwards for more visiting. Breakfasted and with the dog walked, we were taken to the Gateshead Quays, to see the bridges and the Sage. We even made sure to walk across the Millenium Bridge so that Valerie could say that she's been to Newcastle too :-) The sun shone and ...

          ... about the atmosphere as it is the play itself. Kellie is now acquainted with the concept of the "beer snake", an ever expanding collection of stacked, empty plastic pint cups that winds it way around the stand. Inevitably though as it expands too far, and just like Icarus, it flies too close to sun (or the ever increasingly intoxicated feeders of the snake add on one too many stacks of cups) and it all comes crashing down, dowsing unsuspecting cricket ...

          Day started off miserable after a rainy night but started to clear up around lunch time.

          Went for a drive around Loch Leven which is the small Loch near the camp. A lovely drive through the valley between high hills. At this end of the Loch there is a village called Kinlochleven. A very nice little village it is too.

          We then set off for Gairlochy to do the canal walk ...
