Here we go again – it’s time for another adventure. This time we’re doing a ten-week self-drive camper tour of South Africa.
It’s taken me quite a while to get round to writing up our last couple of days in Scotland: a straightforward case of blog apathy which even a liberal daily application of red wine has so far failed to cure…..
We’ve had a busy few days travelling south through Ayrshire and into Dumfries & Galloway. This is one of those fabulous parts of the country that we’ve somehow not previously discovered.
We’ve ticked another big “must see” off our list: Mount Stuart on the island of Bute. Now there’s a house I’d like to live in. Oh, and we have a new placing in our British Fish & Chip shop of the year awards……
Staffa has been on our “must see” list since we visited the Giant’s Causeway earlier this year, Staffa being the “other end” of the causeway which stretches under the sea between Northern Ireland and Scotland. We weren’t disappointed!
After weathering Storm Ali during our recent trip to Orkney, it was probably fitting that Storm Callum arrived at the end of this week’s journey south through the islands of Berneray, North Uist, Benbecula, South Uist, and Eriskay.
