Day 550 ROADTRIP to Back of Keppoch near Arisaig 🚐🏖🌊⚡️🌩⛈🌧⛈🌧🌧🌈🌧🌧

1.30am…. Honestly wide awake. God knows why but I could barely open my eyes at 5am when the alarm went off for the Fit Body Farm. I stood like a wee kid with a petted lip not wanting to go.…. But I did…. And boy was it hard work.

Lots of cardio today and an “active recovery” after each activity which is basically running sprints. My body doesn’t actively recover… it actively is still knackered!

It was a good one though!

So back home for 7.30am, shower and packed and ready to go by 9am.

I took this photo of our ivy as I drank my morning coffee. Stunning colours.

So I was on the road for 9am ish which is way later than I had planned to be but I had grossly underestimated the amount I still had to do. But hey there’s no rush.

So I did the following drive today.

It’s another stunning drive this time from south of Glasgow to Stirling to pick up Auntie Jac and then on up through Callander, over to Crianlarich, up through Glencoe, on to Fort William and finally out to Back of Keppoch which is just outside Arisaig. Wow what a drive. We had torrential rain, pure blue skies and sunshine and lots of rainbows! 🌈

Driving up to Glencoe 🌈
Stopped at traffic lights for roadworks! Stunning!

The colours are stunning as we came over the Ballachulish Bridge…. The sea is so dark and mean and moody
The Mallaig to Fort William railway just outside Arisaig- this railway carries on down to the Glenfinnan Viaduct which was featured in Harry Potter movies
This is our spot for the next two nights – Invercaimbe Campsite in Back of Keppoch
This picture may show just how windy it is….. awfy!
Mean and moody clouds!
Off for a wander!
A burn running into the the sea through the sand
Beautiful rocks
Lovely colours
This has happened a good few times today

At one point the sea and sand was been blown up on the grass… it was crazy….

A caravan that looks like it’s permanently on the site, had its awning come loose and blow right up over the top of their van. It’s still attached but covering the roof! We contacted the site owner and she said the owners are on their way up tonight. She’s had 5 folk text her to tell her…

And then this happened…..

Sunset over the Isle of Eigg
The colours were stunning and this doesn’t do it justice

Auntie Jac came out and took these stunning pics!

Love it! I look like I’m levitating!
Windswept shelfie!
The sky was just stunning

So hopefully we’re not blown away overnight…. The pop top is down as it’s too windy and I can have my Fiamma awning out. But it’s super cosy in here.

Dinner was pasta with a bottle of Nozeco.

Bed will not be far away….. the wind buffeting the van is strangely comforting. Until I need the loo. Will try not to think about that!!!

Stay safe everyone 🌅🌅🌅
