And so this is the end of our little 'Highland Fling'. In total we have driven over 1630 miles, travelled by car, bus, plane, train and boat, taken 6500 photos (between us), visited over 100 unique places, covering everything from castles to stately homes, a distillery to a lighthouse and everything in between. Our favourite part has definitely been travelling around in the Highlands and seeing some stunning landscapes, this has only ...

A quick detour to Holy Island which seems like a great place, but we didn't get any time to properly explore due to the rising tide and the risk of being caught on the island for 4 or 5 hours, so we will do our tidal homework tonight and plan our visit for some time tomorrow. One reason we chose to stay in the ...
... first ball with an awesome 4. Unfortunately 2nd ball he again went the slog and got bowled!
He then kept for the first half and did well, we eventually got them all out, and a few extras (I think we let them bat 12 or 13) for 118. Westy was a stand out, his 100 no, bowled 3 and took a great catch. Whilst it ended up being an easy game the boys still got a lot out of it as they settle into playing ...
