We were incredibly lucky with the holiday cottage that we stayed in for our week in Scotland. The main reason for choosing it was that it was near Jim's final munro and ran its weeks from Sunday - Sunday which meant that he could go up with all his friends on a Saturday. In fact it was such a good cottage that we might well return to it - not something we usually do. We booked this cottage via this website.
Here is an enlargement of the mosaic of the cottage that I embedded in the one above:
The weather was very mixed but I was happy to be in the cottage when it rained!
I was constantly entertained by the birds that visited to feed.
One day we visited a Glen nearby and played with pebbles.
I made the stack and Jim made the flower.
In Callender we saw Scottish Dancing and kilts for sale:
But the souvenir I bought was this - not very Scottish maybe but a crow with character!
