  • Edinburgh Day 2Monday 8th June The sun is shining and the wind is at a standstill. It was still quite cool for us, so a multi layered approach was necessary to go out into the day. Some of the locals think Posted by Jill Forster in Europe 2015 | Jun 8, 2015
  • Can You RememberCan you remember back to a time when life was such that you could or would; Park your car for free in town, get out and walk away ... no need to lock it. Drive along waving to all the Posted by DeniseUK15 in Denise n Rob UK Tripping | Jun 7, 2015
  • Edinburgh Day 1Sunday 7th June What are our impressions of Scotland, so far? Well, it is very green, very very green. It has mountains a plenty. It has cold weather, even in Spring and it is almost Summer. It Posted by Jill Forster in Europe 2015 | Jun 7, 2015
  • Cliffs and CleftsCliffs and Clefts Up at 7:20, breakfast at the hotel and into the car onto A970 North aiming for the cliffs at Esha Ness.

  • Sailing on the WindWhile Rob was at the hospital lab with Geoff, I sat at Fjara waiting for my coffee to come, looking longingly over the grey waves crashing on the rocks. I wanted to see if any seals were visiting today. The Posted by DeniseUK15 in Denise n Rob UK Tripping | Jun 5, 2015
  • Gairloch Day 6Friday 5th June The showers rolled in again this morning and it did not stop raining until about 3 in the afternoon. Then the sun came out. Yippee! So we grabbed the chance and drove to a spot Posted by Jill Forster in Europe 2015 | Jun 5, 2015
  • Gairloch Day 5Thursday 4th June Yes, it has been Ground Hog Day here again! But a good one. Just some walks on beaches and the walk around to the pier again. It would be very easy to get into a Posted by Jill Forster in Europe 2015 | Jun 4, 2015
  • Rocky ShorelineThough we'd planned to have a sleep in this morning that plan was revised when Geoff suggested a lab visit at 9am for Rob. So we got up usual time, packed our heaving bags, ate our last Karrawara breakfast prepared Posted by DeniseUK15 in Denise n Rob UK Tripping | Jun 3, 2015

  • Gairloch Day 4Wednesday 3rd June Today there is sunshine (and a bit of cloud)! It is cool but not chilly. The wind has dropped too and the loch is calm. So off to the Inverewe Gardens, w Posted by Jill Forster in Europe 2015 | Jun 3, 2015
  • Surprises in the PalaceYesterday was sunny, today the forecast was for a more grey day so we set off early to South Ronaldsay to explore the south. In Perth the causeway separates suburbs, in Orkneys causeways separate islands. So we Posted by DeniseUK15 in Denise n Rob UK Tripping | Jun 2, 2015
  • Gairloch Day 3Tuesday 2nd June This place is delightfully and deliciously seductive. If we could afford to live in a place like this, we would hardly want to move from it. Each time you look out the window there is a Posted by Jill Forster in Europe 2015 | Jun 2, 2015
  • Which Bird is That?Correct me if I am wrong but I was under the impression that sunshine, clear blue skies, a bit of a breeze and friendly people made a place appealing. We came to The Orkneys to see if we could cope Posted by DeniseUK15 in Denise n Rob UK Tripping | Jun 1, 2015
  • Gairloch Day 2Monday 1st June It is ground hog day, but pleasantly so. It is another cold day in Gairloch with relatively strong winds. It is described as being unseasonal and we heard some l Posted by Jill Forster in Europe 2015 | Jun 1, 2015
  • Night Night in SunlightOur last drive in Inverness clocked up another 175 miles this morning when we loaded all our luggage into the car and went to the airport via Helmsdale in Sutherland. Of course there was a castle....more about that in a Posted by DeniseUK15 in Denise n Rob UK Tripping | May 31, 2015
  • Gairloch Day 1Sunday 31st May In Gairloch the sun fades at about 11 pm and it gets brighter at about 3.30 am. It does not really get truly dark. So this is playing a bit of havoc with our sleep patterns. Posted by Jill Forster in Europe 2015 | May 31, 2015
  • B & B & BBLast night it was still light outside at about 11pm when I looked and then the sun was on the rise again from about about 3am. Strange! We did not hit the road, following breaky until 8:30 with Urquhart Castle Posted by DeniseUK15 in Denise n Rob UK Tripping | May 30, 2015

  • Natural Beauty Yesterday (28/5/15) rain lead the way from Redwood House to Inverness. We stopped at Eilean Donan Castle...where the rain stopped for us and sunshine lit the walls and bridge for us. Looking inside we had no idea how Posted by DeniseUK15 in Denise n Rob UK Tripping | May 29, 2015
  • Tip of the Skye IsleHaving programmed in the desire to see the Skye Museum of Island Life into our holiday diary, we swapped keys and camera so Rob could photograph the coast line between Greshornish and Lub Score.
