#Holiday – Touring the Inner Hebrides – Mull to Skye #Scotland

Drawing near to the end of this grand tour of the Inner Hebrides, we travelled on from Mull, over the mainland to Mallaig, where we took the ferry ‘over the sea to Skye’. Unfortunately, we left in a downpour, which made it hard to take a good photo of Tobermore. You might recognise this one […]

#Holiday – Touring the Inner Hebrides – Mull day 3 #Scotland

While my creativity is still on hiatus, I’m going to finish up the rest of our tour of the Inner Hebrides. I opted for 3 days on Mull, and I’m SO pleased I did – we would never have crammed it all into 2 days, and there are still things left over we didn’t get […]

#Holiday – Touring the Inner Hebrides – Mull & Staffa #Scotland

To reach our next destination, Mull, we needed to drive up the west coast to Oban. All of the west coast of Scotland is beautiful, but this trip didn’t give us any spare time to stop and admire views, as the time between ferry sailings was pretty tight. We’d already explored a lot of Oban […]

#Holiday, Touring the Inner Hebrides, Isle of Arran continued #Scotland

Continuing with the soggy tale of our day on Arran, after our clamber down to the King’s Caves, we were decidedly soaked. Yes, I had the correct waterproof coat, but I’d forgotten that my walking boots live up at the house in the Highlands, which we would be going to after this odyssey, but not […]

#Holiday – touring the Inner Hebrides. Day 1 – Arran, the King’s Caves #Scotland

After touring the Outer Hebrides last year, this year was the turn of the Inner Hebrides. Arran isn’t technically one of the Inner Hebrides, but it fits nicely into a tour starting at Glasgow and heading north, so that was our first destination. If you saw last year’s posts (find them HERE), you might remember […]

#Holiday #Edinburgh #Scotland – the Royal Yacht Britannia

If you do ever stay in Edinburgh I highly recommend a visit to the docks to take a tour of the Royal Yacht Britannia – a fascinating insight into the queen’s beloved floating holiday home, decommissioned by the Labour government in 1997 with the refusal to replace her. She was in service from 1954 until […]

#Holiday #Scotland – Edinburgh Castle

Edinburgh Castle – imposing, isn’t it? And once inside, you really get a sense of the large complex within the walls, not just the castle itself. And the impressive way it was built into and onto the very rock of the extinct volcano upon which it sits Once inside you really start to get a […]

Edinburgh should be on everybody’s bucket list #holiday

I’ve been hanging onto this one for a while – since May, in fact, as there has been so much else going on, but I felt it was about time to start sharing my visit to this amazing city. I’m not, by nature, a city lover. Holidays, for me, are usually about getting out into […]

Touring the #OuterHebrides – day 8 – Lewis #holiday #Scotland

I’m back in the Highlands this week, so it seemed an appropriate time to put together the last couple of posts from our epic tour of the Outer Hebrides. I’ve been a bit slow doing these two as there were just SO many photos and videos to sort through it was a bit daunting. What […]

#Holiday time – Touring the #OuterHebrides day 5 – North Uist

There have been so many other things to write about in the past few months, I failed to get through all my intended posts about my October tour of the Outer Hebrides, so I’m picking that up again now. Here we are, moving on from South Uist to North Uist. North Uist covers 117 square […]
