Room smaller than last night (well the twin room is anyway).
Clean and tidy but it was a long trek to the room with all our gear. No heating on when we got here (just when we needed to dry out ), but soon put it onto 'stun ' mode and soon warmed up.
Continental brekky in the morning so not expecting too much.

Once again, this castle was very different to all those I have seen before and I enjoyed exploring all the rooms, with many having been restored, well that is with proper rooms rather than ruins. We had wanted ...
... informed us there was not a bed to be found in the area and told us we would end up sleeping in the car. Taking up the gauntlet Rhianwyn ran door to door down several streets looking for a bed. The one B&B that had room had an unfriendly guy, who had hiked up the price by £30, had no off road parking, and no breakfast. Carrying on Rhianwyn got back in the car, which John had been skilfully driving through the congested ...

As we were going to have an early start the next day, we decided to have a quick dinner on the wharf. We came across a great seafood hut that was selling their catch of the day, both fresh and cooked. We had the mussels cooked in garlic, shallots and white wine which was delicious. A great way to end our time in Scotland's seafood ...
