Day 552 Back of Keppoch to Arisaig to Glenfinnan to Fort William through Glencoe to Stirling then Glasgow and home!

Wow what a trip! The forecast was pretty horrific and we’ve had some fairly shocking weather but we’ve also been so lucky with the beautiful weather we had. It threw up so many stunning and vibrant rainbows… the darkest skies, honestly jaw dropping a lot of the time.

This is a stunning part of Scotland 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 and we will be back!

This was one of my last sunset pics last night… a cloud catching the light of the sunset behind the rest of them! Wow!

I didn’t sleep as well last night but I did always roll over and get back to sleep. There was heavy rain and wind which wasn’t forecast but we were cosy.

We left before 9am and headed through Arisaig to take some pics. The tide was quite far out.

Moody skies but so beautiful
Abbie parked in Arisaig!

Auntie Jac was driving as I was really tired and it meant I could jump out for photos. Plan!

We stopped in a lay-by at the side of Lochailort on the way to Fort William. Stunning.

There’s a viaduct at the bottom of this loch
Zoom in on the viaduct
Now looking back up through it

The drive down was so atmospheric. It’s raining on and off and autumn seems to have arrived since we drove up on Friday afternoon.

Not gonna lie. I had no intentions of walking this far in the pouring rain this morning…. But this is Harry Potter viaduct.

Next stop the Glenfinnan Viaduct from the Harry Potter movies

When we were kids I remember this being visible from the road but the trees have grown so much in all those years… I realise how obvious that sounds. It still surprises me.

I drove the rest of the way as I felt so much more awake after the wee break. Jac took some pics on the way down

The rest of the journey took us down through Crianlarich to Callander. I never get to drive this road anymore as we usually take the Glasgow route from Crianlarich down past Loch Lomond. It was lovely to see the route we would have taken as kids from the Edinburgh side of the country.

Callander was so sunny but absolutely heaving with people. We got there at 12.35… peak time I guess. It’s a lovely town with lots of coffee shops, woollen mills and outdoor shops. My kinda place to be honest! We could have stopped and taken so many photos but, I was just ready to be home.

Got stuck in the Rangers football traffic coming back through Glasgow and got home just in time for the game at 3. Yay….. 🤦🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️

Unpacked, put everything into the washing basket and had a long shower.

We had the best weekend! We managed to see so much, some stunning scenery, beautiful sunrise and sunsets, rainbows, sea, sand, dunes, coos, ferries…. everything Scotland has to offer.

Yet again I’m home and so proud of our beautiful country. I took so many photos I’m going to leave you with some more from the last few days. Special memories in the making. Thanks to Auntie Jac for showing me round this special place!

Wow.

So Sunday evening…. Just like that. Not gonna lie, could have another few days off…. Easy. But hey… we can all take whatever this week throws at us. Every day is precious. Love it to the full!

Stay safe everyone 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🌈🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿
