Today started bright (yes, really) and early as we had to be on the coach by 8:15. We had about a two hour drive to Glamis on some of the most narrow and winding roads imaginable.

There was a tolerated overnight stop at the ski lift area at Mount Glencoe so we stayed there for a very peaceful night (with the midges).
There were deer near the carpark early the next morning which was quite exciting. We set off early carrying on through the Glencoe Pass which was quite cool ...
