A very nice hotel adjacent to the beach. Rooms were fine with hotel / dining making for a very comfortable stay, We visited there again for a drink in 2010 - starting to look a little tired (perhaps symptomatic of the economy at the time).

The coast line and the scenery was just stunning! We thought that Scotland was green but Ireland was a whole new shade of green! We stopped at one point near a little beach and I ran down to dip my toe in the Atlantic Ocean. It was freezing! We stopped for lunch back in the actual town of ...

We rounded the evening off at an Irish Pub (Murrays), with a small meal and a Guiness.

I'm calling it a day. Tomorrow we're off to ...

... attempt to summon Nessie from the depths, sadly she did not make her presence known to us and none of us will be becoming immeasurably wealthy off the selling of photographs of the fabled Loch Ness monster. We then had a brief stop in a lovely little town called Fort Augustus and another at the Commando Memorial for commanders from the wars which was situated in a very lovely and scenic spot. We then wandered around an old and falling down castle called ...
