    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.

    ... carriages including a buffet car. Even the station waiting rooms have customers sipping tea in a timeless fashion. We pass through narrow gorges where branches from spruce trees sweep the windows as we pass by. Up, up we go eventually bursting out across wide valleys. All of a sudden we are into the highlands with wet moorland stretching out to the far hills and snow- capped Ben Nevis in the distance. We stop for water and for trekkers to ...

    ... could be very harsh indeed. Time for a bowl of vegetable soup and another cuppa on the waterfront as we waited for the rain to ease then we climbed the slippery slope back to our hotel. There is so much to see here that we wish we had allowed a few more days to experience it at our leisure. Maybe next time. This hotel is perfect for dozing while waiting for the rain to stop and we suspect we are not the first travellers in its 130 year history to have done just ...

    ... our B&B. It's an imitation of the Colosseum, built about a century ago by a local businessman aiming to alleviate seasonal unemployment among the stonemasons and to create a museum, gallery and chapel. However, work stopped after McCaig's death and the bronze statues of his family were never added to the lancer windows. The views are spectacular.

    ... scenery. We stopped several times to take photos, change camera lenses and yes... more photos! It was then on to Rannoch Moor were we took a delightful back road were the road was single track and followed the River Orchy which was very pretty. We had luncheon by a small waterfall before continuing southwards through more stunning country before arriving at the Downton Abbey Scottish holiday castle, at Inverary. Naturally I was in my element and to see ...

    Drove over to Oban today which is a lovely scenic drive however it was a bit hard to see much due to the rain. Still I stopped at Castle Stalker which is a four-storey tower house or keep picturesquely set on a tidal islet on Loch Laich, an inlet off Loch Linnhe.
    Every time I come to this town it's raining!! Oban is on the west coast nestled in the Firth of Lorn (hence the rain) and has a population of about 8,000 ...
