Our trip to Scotland was painfully short:
we drove up (approx. 6 hours) on Thurday, stopping in Carlisle, and arrived about 6 PM;
Friday started early with a ferry ride at 7:45AM and our day out to the small islands lasted until about 8 that evening;
and Saturday we went for a 10AM tour of Oban Distillery (who doesn't like to start their morning with the smell of fermented barley?!?) and then headed home, making a few stops along the way.
All of these pictures of Oban (except the last three) are from our first evening, just after the heavy rainstorm had passed.
Truth: I don't like the beach. I hate the feel of salt water and I especially don't like sand in my crack. (sorry, Mom)
I absolutely love harbours. I love coastal life, and I love seeing, watching, and being on boats.
I never claimed to make sense.
Hmmm... think he knows this guy in Montrose?
That Coliseum-like structure on the right is McCaig's Tower. Unfortunately we haven't visited it yet... I guess we're not done with Oban yet!
Isle of Kerrera, across from Oban harbour. Yet another place I'd like to visit.
Boats in the harbour the morning of our tour. We took the CalMac ferry over to Mull.

Dunstaffnage Castle from the CalMac ferry.
I was jump-out-of-my-skin excited for our tour!
