... Ratagan Pass. This is supposedly the best views of Scotland. We got lucky and got there when there was a break from the rain. This viewpoint looks over Loch Duich and the Five Sisters of Kintail. It was incredible! After Ratagan's pass, we head back down the road that cuts through mountains and fields of green to the small village of Glenelg. It was so pretty. So much sheep on the hills. At the end of the road we reach the Glenelg Brochs. Brochs ...

The man is a retired Falconer and he was employed by local farmers to control vermin.
On top of all that we had a nice meal, a nice drink and a quick lesson ...
... on until about 5 pm when the clouds came back. Nice and sunny but with a cold wind.
Taking advantage of the nice day we went to the Aqueduct at Trevor which we had visited in 09. This time we went on the canal walk to LLangollen. It is about 4 miles each way and we did it in 90 minutes each way. Canal walks are of course flat so I was not too stressed. When we got to LLangollen the horse drawn canal boat was just leaving for a ...
