... a bit more hairy. All I could think of was how much Kait would have loved it. The babies got their fair share of bread, except they hadn't quite mastered the bread eating technique and dropped half of it for their muma's to get. Hairy coos are cool. DaaaaaD lets get one!
Sir Walter Scott's The Lady of the Lake is based on Loch Katrine, and that was our next stop. Probably the favourite stop on the trip, it is a large loch set in a valley. Completely still and just ...

... burger to warm up. There was also carousal, slide tower and ice skating (which was packed). It really was kind of magical and I think a fine start to Christmas.
On Sunday we got started a bit earlier and took the train to Dumbarton to see the castle. Alex and I both agreed that we should perhaps wait to see Loch Lomond when it was warmer and we could enjoy it, but I wanted to see the castle now while I still had a train pass to get us ...
