2023 Scotland/England Adventure (Part 2)

I have a new love! 
Highland Cattle otherwise known as Hairy Coos!
This one was so smoochy!
Armadale Castle.
The Spiritual Home of Clan Donald.
Sunset at Poolewe.
Sharing the road with Hairy Coos. 
There were also hundreds of sheep along the roads.
Street of the Dead at Iona Abbey,
thought to be over 1000 years old.
Ben Nevis in the background.
Glencoe Folk Museum.
Christening gown used by generations of MacDonalds 
of Glencoe. It was last worn in 1963 at the Christening 
of Graeme MacDonald - the great great great great great 
great great great grandson of Chief Maclain.
Fish and Chips at Oban. 
They were the best ones we had on our trip.
Jacobite Train at Fort William.
The Jacobite train is the one in the Harry Potter movie. 

You could even buy lollies and things from the trolley 
just like Harry, Hermione and Ron!
Going over the viaduct.
Dunrobin Castle.
Dunrobin Castle.
John o-Groats on the northeastern tip of Great Britain.
This is Hector, the Hairy Coo. 
He joined us at John o'Groats.
Hector always sat up front!
Notice how narrow the road is?
We travelled along a lot of these roads.
Annie's Bakery, about 10 minutes away from John 
o'Groats, was recommended for lunch. 
So glad we went. The food was lovely.
Found a new friend!
This is George, the bakery cat.
George is actually a girl and is 17 years old!
Had a bit of a chuckle with this 
sign in the dining room!

What stunning photos, but then, the scenery is stunning. How lucky to ride on the Jacobite train. You must be reliving more lovely memories in this post.

Oh man! Now I must put Scottland on my "must visit" list along with Norway and back to New Zealand and Australia. I LOVED the virtual tour with all of the old buildings and castles and Hairy Coos including the one on the hood of the car.

I forgot to mention the wonderful garden on the sea shore - stunning from above!
