29th November – 6th December 2023

December 9, 2023 by Alison in

A lovely wild & frosty week with a dusting of snow. Lots of lovely (steep!) walks and good lunches.
Walked the hills above Luss, beautiful views, hill behind Helensburgh, muddy but superb views when we got there. Highlight was a walk up to the Folly from Inveraray Castle, lovely views over Loch Fyne and we loved Inveraray. Had a great lunch in Brambles Cafe in the main street as they take dogs.

Thank you for a great week.
