... Had to follow a tractor part way home, not a huge tractor, but no passing lanes and he just cruised at 60km, our driver said we lost 30mins off schedule. Traffic was backed up for a couple of miles behind him. There are lots of tractor cruising on the main highways. Walked on back to the hotel from the drop off with another couple from Canada. This blog sounds a bit of a shambles, but we saw so much and loved every minute, so so pretty and a perfect day for ...

He made a point to tell us that he had ...
... Burns was one of Little Nanna's great-grandfathers - interesting... We took photos out the front of the cottage in which he was born, walked through the museum about his life, and visited his monument up the street (in the freezing cold. Thankfully the rain had subsided...). Grabbed a quick lunch at the visitor centre before back on the coach, heading for the ferry which would carry us across to Ireland!
