We have had a superb holiday in this wonderful part of the world and with the most amazing weather!

Glenfruin Lodge was great, such a relaxing retreat after a days exploring and everything you need. I have to say we both have not slept better than here, the bed is so comfortable and such peaceful surroundings.

We walked to Luss on Sunday and got a taxi back from the hotel where we had lunch. On Monday, we cycled around Loch Katrine, such glorious views. Tuesday we drove to Falloch Falls, Tyndrum and shopped in The Green Welly Shop and then onto Glencoe and on the way back had lunch at the Falls of Dochart.

Wednesday and Thursday we drove to Oban, did the whisky distillery which was fab and then got the ferry to Isle of Mull and spent a night at Tobermory. Friday we went to Inverary, visited the castle and had lunch at the George hotel.

Thankyou Alison & Craig for being great hosts and for getting our washing in!!
