... s to their coffers by visiting.

The gardens are splendid, the castle breathtaking and the falconry display a real treat.

While Steph and I ogled Dunrobin, Alan played a great round of golf at the Brora Golf Club, and Duncan had a beer somewhere. They missed out that's all I can say!


Over the hills to Lochinver

... Our feet needed the less miles. We have christened such days as LJGT days..."Lets Just Get There" days. There are other descriptions but they are not for this blog! As a consequence no great pictures. Lairg claims itself to be the gateway to the North, but that's about it. We have again found a great place to stay...
