Sunday 24 February 2019


A few photos in random order of my long weekend away in Scotland at the end of January. I had a cheeky Friday off work and we set off on the four hour drive on the Thursday straight after work. We holidayed with two other couples - who we normally celebrate Burn's Night with but this year, we did it in style. Absolutely loved it. The PortsochananHotel wasn't in the mid Nowhere, it was at the End of Nowhere. Stunning views. Freezing cold and remoteand quietand perfect. A day trip to Glencoe and Fort William one day and to Oban the next. A lovely drive home on the Sunday. We came back with lovely memories, a vow to do it again and a new found love of haggis bonbons! On the menu. Divine. Little crunchy fried balls of haggis, served with a whisky cream sauce! I don't even like whisky! Apologies for the jumpiness of this post. It'll be muc better when I get my mitts on a laptop. 
This post is almost a month late! I can't even get to the end onthis iPad to do my sign off so I will do it here. 
Lots of love from

 This was Bluebell when we went away up to stay on the banks of Loch Awe for Burn's Night 2019. She is clearly pining.....

The first meal of pancetta wrapped cod loin was delicious. 

Glencoe I think.

This dining room table was hilarious! Why a hippo in the Scottish Highlands? 

Traditional pipes. 

The accurate accent for the poetry of Rabbie Burrrrrrruns. 

 Tasted far better than it looks.
The haggis was yummy.

Tasted as good as it looks! 

View from the hotel over Loch Awe.

We literally threw the contents of the car in the dining room and she did not move from ere for aaaaaaaaages as if to say, you are not going away without me!
